Verdict

Street Runner won this a year ago and looked on the way back at Bellewstown last week. Harangue has completed a hat-trick in fine style but another 8lb rise for his victory over Carlyan and PRESENTING KATE at Sligo gives him plenty to do. The placed horses are entitled to reverse the form on these terms and it's the latter who is taken to prevail as a mistake at the second last cost her plenty of momentum. Carmels Boy is a winning hunter chaser on a very lowly mark over timber and the market should prove a good guide to his chances while Katys Girl could hardly have been more impressive at Kilbeggan on Friday and has to be a threat in that kind of mood.
