Forecasts

Knappers Hill (4/9), Diligent (5/2), Geni De La Cour (14/1), Cadeau D'Or (25/1), Alkhattaaf (66/1), Diamond Jack (250/1)

Verdict

KNAPPERS HILL folded tamely for whatever reason in the EBF final at Sandown last time, but his previous form is strong, and this looks an excellent opportunity to resume winning ways. Clonmel-scorer Geni de La Cour may have more to offer for his new yard and is feared most ahead of the doubly-penalised Diligent.
