Verdict

Gordon Elliott arrives here mob-handed with five entries though only HALLING'S TREASURE and Moss Street are likely to attract attention. The former looked a probable winner at one stage at Naas last time but couldn't cope with the useful Ivan Grozny and today's rival Indian Icon. In the hope that the ground doesn't turn bog-like, he's given the vote to reverse form with the runner-up and also see off his stablemate, who has had enough chances. Close One has run well in a couple of bumpers and this half-brother to five winners should be much more at home over hurdles.
