Adrimel (7/2), Midnight River (5/1), Oscar Elite (5/1), Make Me A Believer (11/2), Mint Condition (8/1), Jay Bee Why (8/1), Pure Bliss (9/1), Lord Of Kerak (11/1), Optimise Prime (12/1), Sending Love (16/1), Glen Mooar (500/1), Fitz Well (500/1)

MAKE ME A BELIEVER ran out a determined winner of a small-field Cheltenham novice last month and, with the performance backed up by the timefigure, he's fancied to continue his good work now stepping up in class. Midnight River boasts some solid form for a yard that has won 2 of the last 5 renewals of this contest, so he merits respect, along with the promising Oscar Elite.

  1. MAKE ME A BELIEVER (IRE)
  2. MIDNIGHT RIVER
  3. OSCAR ELITE (IRE)
