16/1

Verdict

The unknown quantity is Belper, a half-brother to Grade 1 novice chase winner Coney Island. He looks like the only possible danger to the well-related SO DES FLOS, a stable outsider when making a pleasing debut over a shorter trip at Leopardstown. Buachaillbocht is unexposed. The low-rated Moyode Mist has plenty of experience. [Alan Sweetman]
