Verdict

DARROUN gets another chance in this having fallen on his chasing bow at Ballinrobe last month. Willie Mullin's charge should have benefited for that experience and is much better than today's opponents over hurdles. Minella For Value landed a maiden hurdle last time but had gone close over fences at Roscommon earlier while Im Cool Too has leading claims with a reproduction of his narrow-margin defeat at Kilbeggan in July. What A Island will have come on for a recent spin round Ballinrobe and makes most appeal of the remainder.
