Verdict

SHALAMZAR's third at Limerick in April is just about the best recent form on offer in this and Barry Geraghty can steer Tony Martin's charge home in front today. Cut Loose was well backed in all four starts in bumpers and might do better now switching to hurdles. Empressario has had a break but would be in the firing-line if fully wound-up and Piece D'Or had a run on the Flat last month and has shown some ability. She looks the pick of the remainder.
