Forecasts

Broomfield Burg (5/2), Quinta Do Mar (9/2), Punxsutawney Phil (5/1), Lively Citizen (6/1), Castel Gandolfo (9/1), The Grey Falco (11/1), Royaume Uni (14/1), Esprit Du Large (20/1), Mengli Khan (22/1), Robinshill (25/1), Feel The Pinch (100/1), Jan Maat (125/1)

Verdict

BROOMFIELD BURG is an unexposed type representing top connections and is fancied to make light of an opening handicap mark of 130. This is much deeper than the Fontwell race Quinta Do Mar won last time but a 6 lb rise for that wide-margin success doesn't look excessive so he's put forward as the chief threat ahead of Robinshill.

  1. BROOMFIELD BURG (IRE)
  2. QUINTA DO MAR (IRE)
  3. ROBINSHILL (IRE)
