Verdict

Kilgefin Star was receiving 7lb when beating MYSTEREE over track and trip three weeks ago. The latter is fancied to reverse running on the revised terms and gets the nod. Mr Syntax is back over hurdles for the first time since 2010 on his reappearance and will figure if running anywhere near his chase mark. Bumper winner Magic Present is worth a second glance on his hurdling bow along with point-to-point winner The Last Samuri while L'eminence Grise may well figure if running something like his best on his first outing for a year.
