Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

MONMIRAL made the perfect start in a 15-runner contest at Auteuil in March and having transferred to Paul Nicholls there should be plenty more to come. He's fancied to defy a penalty, perhaps at the chief expense of Duke of Condicote and course bumper winner The Worthy Brat.

Betting Forecast

11/8 Monmiral (Fr), 7/2 Duke Of Condicote, 12/1 Bourbali (Fr), 15/2 Ronde De Nuit (Fr), 25/1 Honneur D'ajonc (Fr), 8/1 The Worthy Brat (Ire), 150/1 Shutupshirley, 50/1 Devongate, 300/1 Zellerate (Ire)
