Forecast

Al Dancer (5/1), Good Boy Bobby (6/1), Master Tommytucker (15/2), Cepage (9/1), Coole Cody (10/1), Saint Sonnet (10/1), Midnight Shadow (12/1), Windsor Avenue (12/1), Chatham Street Lad (16/1), Southfield Stone (16/1), Annie Mc (18/1), Champagne Mystery (22/1), Benatar (25/1), Militarian (33/1), Romain De Senam (33/1), Huntsman Son (33/1), Drumconnor Lad (100/1)

Verdict

A cracking renewal in which CEPAGE is fancied to make it third time lucky after fine efforts to reach the frame in the past two renewals. Venetia Williams' admirable C&D winner goes very well fresh too so can gain a deserved victory and fend off Dan Skelton's well-weighted Romain de Senam and last month's Paddy Power Gold Cup 1-3 Coole Cody and Al Dancer.

  1. CEPAGE (FR)
  2. ROMAIN DE SENAM (FR)
  3. COOLE CODY (IRE)
