High-class chaser who has improved again this term, including landing Grade 3 C&D handicap on New Year's Day. Found out back at Grade 1 level at Ascot since but he was third in this 12 months ago.

12 J: P. Townend
T: W. P. Mullins, Ireland
First and second in the last 2 renewals of this race. 11 now but showed he's still capable of top-class form when chasing home Altior in Tinge Creek on return. Should give his usual good account.

Analyst's Verdict

Last year's outstanding novice FOOTPAD has had a stuttering campaign but he did go through the vast majority of his Leopardstown race over Christmas like the horse of last season and he's taken to bounce back to his best. His admirable stablemate Un de Sceaux is 11 now but he's still capable of a very high level of form and is narrowly preferred to Frodon for the forecast spot.
