Verdict

The Irish have dominated this in recent years but it's the British who are taken to come out on top this time, with impressive Warwick winner IMPERIAL ALCAZAR selected to make light of an 8 lb rise and prove too strong for Champagne Platinum. The Bosses Oscar and Southfield Harvest are also high on the shortlist.

  1. IMPERIAL ALCAZAR (IRE)
  2. CHAMPAGNE PLATINUM (IRE)
  3. THE BOSSES OSCAR (IRE)
