Forecasts

Tombstone (2/1), Midnight Escape (5/1), Moulin A Vent (5/1), Gilt Shadow (15/2), Bobbie's Diamond (11/1), Thebarrowman (14/1), Kilfenora (14/1), Thirsty Work (14/1), Kopookris (14/1), Weather Watch (20/1), Little Haarth (25/1), Bard Of Armagh (33/1)

Verdict

Midnight Escape and Thebarrowman with possibly Weather Watch up with the pace could make this a decent test. Moulin A Vent a 137-rated hurdler who makes his chasing debut here and TOMBSTONE, a fine second on chasing debut could make this a battle royal. The returning Gilt Shadow could slip in to the places.
  1. Tombstone
  2. Moulin A Vent
  3. Gilt Shadow
