Forecasts

Tullybeg (11/4), Born Patriot (18/5), Butler's Brief (15/2), Shannon Bridge (10/1), Push The Tempo (10/1), Jersey Wonder (11/1), Panic Attack (12/1), Tobefair (14/1), Havana Hermano (18/1), Macgiloney (18/1), Kansas City Chief (20/1), Haul Away (25/1), Tide Times (25/1), Geordie Des Champs (25/1), Mustang Alpha (50/1)

Verdict

Given his record here it's perhaps worth chancing TOBEFAIR, who may not be quite the force of old as he approaches his 12th birthday but is dangerously well handicapped having won this off 14 lb higher in 2019. Irish-raider Tullybeg arrives in top form and rates a big threat. Havana Hermano has been consistent of late, while Kansas City Chief is another well-treated veteran who goes well here..

  1. TOBEFAIR
  2. TULLYBEG (IRE)
  3. HAVANA HERMANO (IRE)
