Verdict

The last three winners have been returned 16/1, 7/1 and 12/1 so the market doesn't always go to plan. Noel Meade has won the race twice in recent years and Heck Thomas will come in for support though his pedigree is all about chasing. Don't Know is a half-brother to a winning bumper while Sigtrygg Silkbeard's dam is from the family of the classy Indian Ridge. She's A Leader and Golanedge both have winning bumpers in their families but it's MOLLY'S AFFAIR who catches the eye and is handed the vote as she's the fifth foal of a mare who has already produced three winners and who won over 1m2f on the Flat in France.
