Verdict

This won't take much winning and Butney Rock, fourth over track and trip before his latest third at Punchestown, appears to have the best form on offer. But WINNIE COOPER probably has the greater scope and Adrian Murray's winning pointer will have improved from her fourth at Listowel. Valentino's Choice has also scored between the flags but didn't show much under Rules previously and winning hurdler Railway Icon looks a better long-term prospect.
