Verdict

Clara More, a winner over 2m here on his penultimate start, has been raised a further 7lb since following up at Killarney and may find the hat-trick beyond him. Preference is for BALLYLIBERT, who is on an upward curve judged on his latest third at Tramore and may be ready to open his account. Given a patient ride, Queen Of Hardship was just denied at Roscommon on her return to action and a similar effort here would put her in the firing-line while Blaze Of Fire and Mountain Lough are recent winners. Diamond Shower is another to consider if reproducing his best while For Dylan wasn't beaten far over this trip at Downpatrick last time.
