Verdict

Not so competitive as the numbers suggest. RODNEY BAY comes here in good nick from the Flat and is fancied to open his account in this sphere at the chief expense of Gold Cup Bailly who has the form to play a big part if fully tuned up after 8 months off the track. Benny The Duke and Willy You Win appeal as the duo best equipped to fight it out for minor honours.

  1. RODNEY BAY (IRE)

  3. BENNY THE DUKE (IRE)
