Verdict

Gordon Elliott saddles 5 as he bids for a third Thyestes win since 2018 and ESCARIA TEN could be the one to provide it. He presumably found the Irish National coming too soon after his big effort at the Cheltenham Festival and appeals as the type who could resume his progress on his return. Mister Fogpatches has plenty of solid handicap form to his name and is feared most ahead of Braeside.

  1. ESCARIA TEN (FR)
  2. MISTER FOGPATCHES (IRE)
  3. BRAESIDE (IRE)
