Verdict

Plenty of runners but few with realistic chances. Ram is one to note for the future though probably over fences while Roman General has performed well enough to be considered for a place along with Aidan O'Brien's Carriganog, who should have plenty of improvement in him. However, all known form points to this being a match between Empresario, runner-up to Bridgequarter Girl on his only start over hurdles at Tramore, and COURAGE, with preference for the latter who has been finding the ground too quick after a narrow defeat by Faanan Aldaar at Roscommon in June.
