Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

INDIGO BREEZE picked up strongly to make a winning return at Galway and, while a bit further might ultimately prove his optimum trip, he has the capability to follow up kept to 2m with further progress on the cards. Daly Tiger, a classy chaser who scored back over hurdles recently, is a big threat along with Autumn Evening.

Betting Forecast

6/1 Annamix (Fr), 7/2 Daly Tiger (Fr), 16/1 Top Moon (Fr), 2/1 Autumn Evening, 4/1 Indigo Breeze (Fr)
