Verdict

Barry Geraghty's presence on MOSCOW CHIEF may be enough for the winning bumper to gain his first hurdling victory. He was having just his fourth career start when only fading from the last at Punchestown a fortnight ago and the experience won't be lost on him. Doctor Jim fell in that latter event but did much better at Killarney a couple of days later and is progressing enough to make his presence felt but Cloone Springs has yet to prove he stays this trip. Ring Ben was in quite good form in the autumn but hasn't run since December. Cool Klan has shown a bit of promise and may do best of the remainder.
