Verdict

Big Generator likes to race from the front and though his recent victory at Roscommon and his fine placed effort at Navan were over further it will be a surprise if he's not involved in the finish with his rider's claim a major plus. Tisamystery appeared to enjoy fast conditions at Clonmel so probably wouldn't want any more rain but the going won't be a problem for FANTASY KING. He's been improving with every run over hurdles and, though the assessor hasn't done him any favours after his maiden victory at Navan, there's more to come and he can complete the double. Both Top Spin and Hold Em Cowboy are running well and should get involved and The Hamptons is better than we've seen recently so could go well at a big price.
