Verdict

The hunter Nevskij is in good form but likely to find this too short while War Of The Pennys ran poorly in a similar race at Cork. Up The Hill made all at Roscommon but this is a much stronger race and he wouldn't want any more rain. Eight Till Late was facing fast ground for the first time at Limerick and showed his liking for the surface with a battling performance. He'll improve again as will Riverside City, who has been progressing nicely though his maiden victory at Gowran came over 2m4f. He could provide the main danger to GRAND PARTNER, who has been steadily improving and was always travelling nicely when landing a Cork maiden. He could have too much basic speed for his rivals and can complete a double.
