Verdict

Airspace won this a year ago from stall one and, again well berthed and just 3lb higher, can go well again. Nidian and Expire battled out the finish at Navan and the form looks strong with the runner-up coming out and scoring at Naas on Wednesday but neither are well drawn and it would be no shock if Fiddle Player, who finished fourth at Navan, were to reverse the positions. JEDWARD was having only her fourth start when an excellent third in a huge field over the C&D last month. She's certain to improve for that and a middle berth shouldn't be a problem. Jouster drops to this trip for the first time and blinkers will need to work, and though Ability N Delivery has been going well on Polytrack he was beaten in this a year ago.
