Forecasts

Absolutely Dylan (10/3), Iwasthefutureonce (4/1), Prince Dundee (5/1), Monte Alban (6/1), Tour De Pub (13/2), Well Smitten (8/1), Blow By Blow (9/1), Westend Theatre (10/1), Oh No (16/1), Square Viviani (16/1), Mcginty's Dream (16/1), Graystown (22/1), Nakadam (25/1), Hidden Cargo (40/1), Article Fifty (50/1), Kitty Fisher (66/1)

Verdict

ABSOLUTELY DYLAN is still weighted to win one of these and this could be it with his yard going well. Prince Dundee has a good record here and showed he retains his ability when third over C&D last time, so rates the main threat ahead of Well Smitten, who has dipped below his last winning mark.

  1. ABSOLUTELY DYLAN (IRE)
  2. PRINCE DUNDEE (IRE)
  3. WELL SMITTEN (IRE)
