Verdict

Winning point-to-pointer and bumper WEDDING PRESENT has the credentials for this. Narrowly beaten by Foxrock on his hurdling debut over this trip at Naas, he'll be unfortunate to come up against one as good here and can go one better. Fergiethelegend has plenty of strong form in the book despite not scoring in seven starts over timber and it will be a surprise if he's not involved while Akatara has been getting outpaced over shorter trips and the likely strong pace should be in her favour. Winning point-to-pointer Cyprian Prince started favourite on his debut under Rules in a Thurles bumper and, though well beaten, he should do better over hurdles and will get a good ride from Mikey O'Connor.
