Verdict

Both of RIPPON LODGE's wins have been at around 2¾m, but dropping back in trip may not be an issue on this undulating track, particularly if allowed to stride on. He pulled his way to the front at the halfway point when opening his chase account at Tramore recently and a 4 lb rise for that looks fair. Fellow last-time-out winner My Manekineko is second choice ahead of Sani Pass and Clody Valley.

  1. RIPPON LODGE (IRE)
  2. MY MANEKINEKO
  3. SANI PASS (IRE)
