Verdict

Midnight Oil tackles this trip for the first time and has always looked like a stayer. He was just touched off by a stable companion on the Flat last time and it would be no shock if the same thing happened here as Darroun is another who looks sure to appreciate stepping up to this trip for the first time after his battling victory over 2m4f at Ballinrobe. Gimli's Rock won this a year ago, his last success, but was a couple of lengths behind Edeymi when they met on the Flat at Galway a week go with DOMINATION just a head behind the winner. The latter is given the nod here as he appears to have improved on the level and comes out best at the weights.
