Verdict

This is all about BOB OLINGER, who looked so good at Cheltenham where he readily accounted for the re-opposing Gaillard Du Mesnil and 5 others. There are no obvious chinks in his armour and, ominously for his rivals, one suspects that the best is yet to come. It's likely that Gaillard Du Mesnil will again be the one to follow Henry De Bromhead's charge home, while Ashdale Bob is best of the rest.

  1. BOB OLINGER (IRE)
  2. GAILLARD DU MESNIL (FR)
  3. ASHDALE BOB (IRE)
