Verdict

INDIANA JONES was fairly useful over hurdles and showed improved form when runner-up behind a very smart prospect on chase debut at Naas 17 days ago. Open to improvement, he's fancied to build on that and come out on top. Busselton boasts plenty of experience and is feared most, ahead of chase-debutant Frontal Assault in an interesting opener.

  1. INDIANA JONES (FR)
  2. BUSSELTON (FR)
  3. FRONTAL ASSAULT (IRE)
