An intriguing renewal that features some top-class juveniles and in 2020, it’s mainly the British as opposed to the Irish to have the strong hand. Solo is the 11/4 market leader with Sky Bet after his more than impressive British debut at Kempton last month, winning the Adonis, a recognised trial for this race, by 13 lengths.
He was well backed that day and looked very classy and it remains to be seen, just how far he could reach. Whilst Solo is new on the scene, the two bets juvenile hurdlers in Britain come to blows here as Dan Skelton’s Allmankind takes on Gary Moore’s Goshen.
Both have been front runners and have looked classy when winning their races and have been popular in the ante post markets. Allmankind is already a Grade One winner and is a 7/2 shot whist you can get 3/1 about Goshen, who will need to improve his jumping.
The main Irish hope looked to have been Henry De Bromhead’s Aspire Tower, however, he fell at the last when perhaps beaten, at odds on, at the Dublin Racing Festival and now needs to prove himself again and is 11/2. The winner that day was Joseph O’Brien’s, A Wave of the Sea and he’s a 12/1 shot for JP McManus.
