Lord Rapscallion (6/4), Eldama (3/1), Mr Wendell (4/1), Saltonstall (5/1), Maud Gonne Spirit (10/1), Contrapposto (200/1)
LORD RAPSCALLION produced a smart performance when runner-up in a valuable handicap from top weight at Leopardstown a week ago and he looks the one to beat on these terms. Eldama certainly possesses the scope to rate higher and is a big threat, with Saltonstall another to consider.
