Verdict

Six of the ten runners have scored over the course and distance. Kamran isn't one of them and he's having his first start since arriving from France. He looks quite well treated and can make his mark if fit enough. Jamesie hasn't won since 2011 and never on the all-weather but he's competed at a much higher level and must be a threat. Captain Cullen and He's Got Rhythm fought out the finish at Roscommon last time where the former just prevailed. There should again be little between them but Johnny Murtagh's presence on the winner may swing things his way. The veteran SIX OF HEARTS finished a close third at the Curragh last week from a mark of 94 and he's 7lb lower here so is taken to get back on the winning trail.
