Verdict

Vengful from the Gordon Elliott yard is a French recruit not seen for 13 months and, while fit, could be in need of the run to cause CHESS GRAND MASTER any concern. The Joseph O'Brien-trained gelding comes in to the race on the back of a recent run and three solid bumper starts in the summer. Noel Meade's Dis Donc and Last Man Standing can battle for the minors.
  1. Chess Grand Master
  2. Vengeful
  3. Dis Donc
