Monkfish (1/2), Latest Exhibition (4/1), Conflated (15/2), Eurobot (12/1), Heaven Help Us (66/1), Foxy Jacks (66/1)

Verdict

MONKFISH had Latest Exhibition narrowly behind him in the Albert Bartlett at the Cheltenham Festival back in March and, with an impressive chase debut success behind him, is taken to prove too strong for Paul Nolan's charge again. Gordon Elliott has an excellent record in this and his Conflated looks clear best of the rest.
