Champagne Fever and Moscow Mannon lead the field at 8/1. Moscow Mannon has been impressive in races with smaller fields, although it is yet to be seen how Moscow Mannon will cope in such a large field. Champagne Fever is less experienced, but has been impressive, winning at Fairyhouse in January.
New Year's Eve won at Market Rasen in February and at Ludlow in January, and looks like an impressive runner at 10/1, as is Royal Guardsman over this distance.
Pique Sous may lack the experience, but is also priced at 10/1. Shutthefrontdoor won at Ascot and Newbury in February and December respecetively and cannot be ruled out here at 12/1.
Of the rest of the field, The New One won at Cheltenham on New Year's Day over a shorter distance and is priced at 14/1. Clonbanan Lad is a 6 year old that may be worth a look at, winning at Naas and Limerick in February and December, and Circular Quay won at Sandown Park in November after starting at a relatively high price.
