|Dr Richard Newland
May be worth keeping an eye out for any runners from the Irish stable of Patrick G Kelly
who trained the winner in 2016 and 2017, both ridden by Davy Russell.
has won this twice with Buena Vista (2010 & 2011) and had three placed from 21 runners since 2008.
This is a race that both Jonjo ONeill
and JP McManus
seem to love with seven wins
between them. It would be no surprise to see the McManus colours winning this race again soon as we have to go back to 2006 for his last victory with Kadoun.
runners should also be monitored as the Champion Irish trainer has had two placed runners in this race in the last ten years from a very small group of runners.
