Verdict

Luke's Benefit reappears after an absence since April but that's rarely a problem for one from his yard and he'll love the ground. Hold Em Cowboy has been running well enough on faster going that he would have liked so has to be considered but it's ANDALUCIA LADY, who ran her best race for some time at Listowel and is on a fair mark, that gets the vote. Galloping Gander started favourite in that latter race but could only finish fifth and has been beaten over fences subsequently. Scarlet Prince landed a Sligo maiden in August and has more to offer though may just lack the experience for this.
