Verdict

FAANAN ALDAAR came off second best in a fight for the line over track and trip last month. Beaten only a neck, he can go one better here as third-placed The Crafty Butcher has since boosted the form with a win. Drumgooland wasn't far behind in fourth and should go well again while Best Value's latest fourth at Cork was his best effort so far. Un Beau Roman has proved disappointing over timber so far and Timely Decision makes more appeal on January's fifth at Leopardstown. The more exposed Shershewill could prove best of the remainder on her latest third at Fairyhouse.
