Verdict

Newberry Hill was second twice at Leopardstown in the autumn and should find a race this season. Joint top weight Morning With Ivan also has ability while Lake Louise won at Navan and the Curragh in October. Willie McCreery could hold the key to this as he runs MONAKOVA and the race-fit Connacht Council, who was second at Dundalk in February. We'll go with the former who has been placed in four of his seven starts, including a good second to Parliament Square at Fairyhouse last summer. He also ran well on the Polytrack in the autumn and should stay a mile here this year. There should be more to come from Burnt Sienna and he's preferred to the more exposed Henry Higgins of the others.
