Verdict

Only two four-year-olds face the starter but one of them, HIGH NET WORTH, may be good enough. He had Wexford Opera 5l behind when runner-up to English Deer over this trip at Down Royal and should have nothing to fear from Jim Bolger's frustrating charge. Papaya is another who is proving difficult to place and ran poorly at Killarney last time but Like A Diamond has to be a threat if taking to Turf as he has produced two very good runs on Polytrack at Dundalk. Brannigan's Law is another yet to race on Turf and hasn't been seen since the second of his two outings at Dundalk in November.
