Forecasts

Minella Encore (11/8), Drury (9/2), Momus (13/2), Foxy Jacks (8/1), Gun Merchant (10/1), Atlantic Shore (12/1), Oscar Montel (12/1), Heroes Of Renown (16/1), I'mstillyourbaby (33/1), Bois De Clamart (33/1), Aarons Day (100/1), Spare Capacity (100/1), Campo Viego (100/1), Larry Looby (100/1), Berkerys Enigma (100/1)

Verdict

Willie Mullins' has time and again brought horses back from long absences close to their best this autumn and with that in mind one can be confident we will see MINELLA ENCORE ready to do himself justice first time back after 21 months off and presuming that to be the case he will take all the beating today. The fact that Paul Townend prefers the selection to Drury is significant because that mare along with Momus and Oscar Montel is among the runners with the best hurdles form in the book.
  1. Minella Encore
  2. Momus
  3. Drury
