Verdict

The veteran Dancing Tornado, whose last two victories have been over 3m, will surely find this on the short side. The trip is no problem for Prince Of Fire, who followed his victory at Down Royal in August with another on the Flat at Dundalk. Curvacious is definitely making progress and overcame problems in-running to score at Killarney while Shadow Catcher has been going well in higher class events than this. MAKE YOUR MARK hasn't quite lived up to expectations but there was nothing wrong with his latest run behind stablemate The Paparrazi Kid in a very tough handicap at Punchestown and he looks the one to be on. Moon Dice has been chasing but usually performs with credit at this level and higher so looks a threat.
