Verdict

It's hardly a surprise that Clare MacMahon is taking advantage of JAMSIE HALL's handicap mark, which is 32lb below that of his chasing rating, as he's in such superb form that he must take all the beating. Asia To Cuba is very lightly raced but has a couple of placed efforts in handicaps to his credit and is looking reasonably handicapped. Information won a handicap over timber at Ballinrobe in July before falling over fences at Roscommon but it's the four-year-old Fearchar who could provide the main threat. Paul Flynn's charge was making his handicap debut and stepping up in trip when scoring at Cork and is improving fast enough to take advantage if the selection fails to fire back over timber.
