Betting

Forecast

Duhallow Gesture (8/11), Presidente Line (2/1), Queen's Magic (4/1), Ballybough Nora (6/1), Perfect Myth (10/1), Coded Message (16/1), Ali The Hunter (80/1), Minnie Escape (100/1), Broke Away (150/1)

Verdict

Useful bumper winner Duhallow Gesture has shown enough over timber to suggest he'll be winning soon and he is an obvious candidate now but French raider PRESIDENTE LINE need maximum respect here. He's already scored in a big-field at Pau and, despite conceding weight, is fancied to go well. Coded Message should find the drop back in trip advantageous while Queen's Magic continues to run well in defeat and may do so once again.
