Verdict

Harry Trotter won this a year ago and though enters the fray in winning form he's 12lb higher this time while runner-up Jembatt has been struggling for form. Six of Hearts can usually be relied on to do his best and isn't badly handicapped though it's almost two years since he last won. REGAL POWER is very well in if able to overcome an absence since October. This is his handicap debut and he's on a lower mark than when successful in a Navan maiden so hopefully Eddie Lynam will have him fit enough and he earns the verdict. Core Element, who is in good form, prefers an extra furlong while Rummaging has only had five runs and won his last two at Dundalk but he's another who hasn't been seen for a while. Srucahan has struggled at the weights after his victory at the opening fixture here in March.
