Verdict

This is made more interesting than usual by the presence of Shield and ASHJAR. The former has looked a smart prospect on several occasions but has also disappointed, as he did when long odds-on at Gowran last time. He may require quicker going so the vote goes to Willie Mullins' charge, who is taking his time to get his act together since arriving from France though would have finished very much closer at Wexford last time but for being badly hampered. Long House Saint has gone off the boil and may do better on quicker going but Fruits Of Molly could go well if there is more rain.
