Forecasts

Opening Batsman (7/2), Full Trottle (4/1), Loughaderra Prince (4/1), Toby Lerone (4/1), Got The Nac (9/1), Shotavodka (10/1), Sir Jack Yeats (10/1), Deadly Sting (16/1), Rouge Et Blanc (40/1), De Bene Esse (40/1), Drumhart (66/1), Bouggietopieces (66/1), Paddy The Stout (100/1)

Verdict

Dan Skelton plotted a similar course when sending out TOBY LERONE to defy a lengthy absence in this race 12 months ago and, with suitable testing conditions prevailing once again, the 11-year-old could take some stopping. Opening Batsmen, Sir Jack Yeats and Got The Nac look the most persuasive of the remainder, whilst any market move for Loughaderra Prince would be interesting.
  1. Toby Lerone
  2. Sir Jack Yeats
  3. Opening Batsman
