Verdict

Gordon Elliott holds a strong hand here and it may pay to side with one of his 4 representatives in the shape of FARCLAS. He acquitted himself with plenty of credit in top-end handicaps last term, finishing a creditable fifth in the Grand National when his stamina appeared to run dry late on. He's expected to go close, with Conflated, Aramax and Darasso others fancied to be in the mix.

  1. FARCLAS (FR)
  2. CONFLATED (IRE)
