Winner

  • Go To

Blackstairmountain: Holds four entries, but just a pound increase would make him hugely appealing off 10st 9lb on good ground over two miles in the County Hurdle.

Loser

Shirley Casper: Others have gone up more than the nine pounds Dessie Hughes' charge has, but, without a win for two years, this 10-year-old will struggle in the Centenary Chase.

Dark Horse

Carlito Brigante: Gordon Elliott's charge was fourth in the Triumph Hurdle in 2010. Off his correct rating of 140, he has an each-way chance at 33/1 in the Coral Cup.
