Forecast

Blackbow (9/4), Carefully Selected (4/1), Relegate (9/2), Getaway John (6/1), Felix Desjy (8/1), Tornado Flyer (12/1), Rapid Escape (12/1), Dorking Boy (16/1), Young Ted (18/1), Where Eagles Dare (40/1)

Verdict

A very strong Champion Bumper with all of the main protagonists from Cheltenham present and correct, with the filly RELEGATE seeking to confirm her superiority over stablemates Carefully Selected, Tornado Flyer and Blackbow, as well as the much hyped Felix Desjy. As at Cheltenham, she receives a handy 7lb allowance from her rivals, and her previous Leopardstown form has been franked since by Getaway Katie Mai at Aintree. However, the prominent racing Carefully Selected might ideally be suited by this much flatter track, whilst Tornado Flyer should be increasingly more street-wise on his third career start, so follow up success isn't a given.
  1. Relegate
  2. Carefully Selected
  3. Felix Desjy
