Carlito Brigante and Colour Squadron lead the betting. Carlito Brigante is a consistent performer however pulled up in the Coral Cup at the Festival last year. Since then Carlito Brigante won at Cheltenham in October and has been reasonably consistent at placing in other races. Colour Squadron struggled to a 13th place at the Festival last year but comes into this year's Festival on good form with second places at Exeter, Newbury and Punchestown in the last year. Colour Squadron is definitely in the running here.
The Druids Nephew performed well at Cheltenham last year, finishing in 6th place, and has performed well in late 2012 and may be worth a speculative bet here.
Shangani has a great chance and won at Catterick and Sandown in February. Vulcanite enjoys the soft going and should be considered if the conditions suit.
Of the rest of the field Kruzhlinin is inexperienced and difficult to consider in the running here. Ohio Gold has won on different types of going, and could be worth a speculative place bet here. Ohio Gold is probably the most consistent of the outsiders in this race.
WinDrawWin Prediction - Shangani To Win. Ohio Gold To Place
