This looks quite tight but offers PINK HAT a chance to gain her first success over timber as she's been racing in better company and not been disgraced. Age Of Glory has a penalty to carry but his overall form puts him in the picture and Honey Pound's close second to Prince Of Lombardy at Thurles suggested he wouldn't be long in winning. Kandinski has been in decent form over fences but would have been better off in a handicap as he's on a much lower rating. Moreece has run well on the Flat over the past couple of weeks and along with the lightly raced Toubaloo can't be dismissed.
