  • WRONG TURN
  • REAL MILAN
  • BOB FORD
  • LIVING NEXT DOOR
  • WHODOYOUTHINK
  • TARQUINIUS

A number of these horses were expected to withdraw. However, many punters will be disappointed that Seabass will not contest this years race. On His Own will also be absent from the big day, his trainer preferring to target the Punchestown Gold Cup in late April.

The next scratching stage is on 31st March, punters will have a much better idea of the final race line-up then. Remember, a maximum number of forty runners is permitted, plus four reserves.
