Verdict

In a typically competitive renewal of this valuable contest, the vote goes to AIN'T THAT A SHAME. He failed to make an impact in the Kim Muir at the Cheltenham Festival on his final start of last season but resumed with a fine effort in the Munster National at Limerick where he was collared close home after making a mistake at the final fence. He's gone up 7 lb for that but probably has more to offer in this sphere. Donkey Years is feared most ahead of the same owner's Ciel de Neige.

  1. AIN'T THAT A SHAME (IRE)
  2. DONKEY YEARS (IRE)
  3. CIEL DE NEIGE (FR)
