Forecasts

Cemhaan (6/5), Captain Haddock (5/1), Maori Knight (15/2), Hotspur Harry (8/1), Great Esteem (8/1), Glan Y Gors (10/1), Catfish Row (25/1)

Verdict

CEMHAAN was disappointing at Newcastle last month, but that was a stronger contest than this one and his brace of runner-up efforts prior to that read well in the context of this. Unlike a couple of these, Captain Haddock's stamina is assured and he is second choice.

  1. CEMHAAN
  2. CAPTAIN HADDOCK (IRE)
  3. MAORI KNIGHT (IRE)
