RUBY WALSH

This one is simple. Carefully Selected (7/4).

I tipped him four months ago at 25/1 and I’m not going to change my mind now.

He’s a very good horse, he’s got loads of gears and stays forever. He’ll win.

FRANK HICKEY

If Battleoverdoyen and Copperhead are put in other races, Carefully Selected (7/4) basically just needs to get around.

He’s a Grade One horse against what is a pretty weak field.

Carefully-Selected

PAUL JACOBS

Carefully Selected is the favourite, but is there value in it? He could well be the banker of the whole week.

But I like a bit of value, and at 10/1 I like Newtide. He’s bred to stay further than this and is an exemplary jumper. I think he’s good value each/way at that price.

LIZZIE KELLY

Carefully Selected (7/4) will win.

PADDY POWER

I think he’ll go off short, but if’s hard to see beyond Carefully Selected (7/4).
