Potters Legend (5/1), Strong Pursuit (13/2), Crosspark (8/1), Valtor (8/1), Late Romantic (8/1), Sametegal (17/2), Seeyouatmidnight (10/1), Ballydine (12/1), Burtons Well (12/1), Regal Flow (14/1), Fingerontheswitch (14/1), Jepeck (16/1), Sir Ivan (20/1), One Style (20/1), Minellacelebration (22/1), Theatre Guide (22/1), Gold Present (33/1)

A typically competitive renewal of this final. CROSSPARK seems to be right back in the groove this season, and looks marginally the most appealing option in a race in which it’s hard to rule out many. Fingerontheswitch is entitled to take a step forward from his reappearance so is another to keep onside for a yard going really well, with Sametegal and Sir Ivan also making the shortlist.

  1. CROSSPARK
  2. FINGERONTHESWITCH (IRE)
  3. SAMETEGAL (FR)
