Verdict

This looks wide-open but EASTERN RULES can benefit from Marc Monaghan's claim and gain his third success on the track. His previous victories were gained over a mile but he finished strongly when tried over 1m1f at Leopardstown in August and this could be his trip. Raydari is going from strength to strength and is unbeaten in two runs at the track. He's been raised 8lb for his latest victory but Sam James is a very competent claimer and his mount still looks fairly treated. Silverlord followed a spell of hurdling with a fine run behind Starstruck here last week and has been left on the same mark but Dusty Trail ran poorly in that race after scoring in testing conditions at Roscommon. Redera has the form to get involved though this could prove on the short-side as he didn't get going until too late over the C&D last time.
