Pencilfulloflead (5/2), Eklat De Rire (11/4), Escaria Ten (11/4), Eurobot (13/2), Forza Milan (12/1), Eleazar Des Neiges (28/1), Foxy Jacks (40/1), Miss Pernickety (80/1)

Verdict

PENCILFULLOFLEAD has quickly made up into one of Ireland's top novice chasers and, with the potential for more to come now stepping up in trip, he has to be considered the one to beat. Eklat de Rire and Escaria Ten also look promising, though.
