Theydon Park (6/4), A Shin Impala (4/1), From Eden (9/2), Look Closer (7/1), Oromo (10/1), Alaliya (14/1), Diamond Warrior (14/1), Muroor (25/1), Dundeedy Lad (25/1), Molten Gold (33/1), Class Honours (100/1)

Verdict

A SHIN IMPALA could scarcely have joined a better team for his jumps career and this two-time winner on the AW may be able to hit the ground running in what looks a relatively weak contest. His trainer is in fine form and he should know his job. Theydon Park rather let himself down at Wexford last time, failing to justify favouritism. He had shown some promise previously however and isn't to be overlooked just yet. From Eden deserves a place on the shortlist on what he's done so far while newcomer Dundeedy Lad is one to keep an eye on in the betting as he's bred to do well.
  1. A Shin Impala
  2. Theydon Park
  3. Dundeedy Lad
