Verdict

Hold Em Cowboy has been in excellent form but is 10lb higher for scoring over the course and distance a fortnight ago when Witness Of Fashion wasn't too far behind and has a big weight advantage. The winner had previously finished three lengths behind the very progressive REFUSED A NAME at Punchestown and appears unlikely to reverse the form so Shark Hanlon's charge gets the nod. Rory's Brother found 2m too short at Naas after a battling success at Limerick and this is more like it while Sherika can revert to fences on a much lower mark after scoring over timber at Thurles.
