Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Impossible to look beyond MINELLA INDO, who stuffed another progressive young chaser at Wexford on his return and looks top-class. Dream Conti made a very encouraging return at Punchestown and could offer some value for the forecast.

Betting Forecast

1/3 Minella Indo (Ire), 15/2 Brahma Bull (Ire), 14/1 Ravenhill (Ire), 10/1 Dream Conti (Fr)
