Verdict

Spot Fine has the form to win this but he's now had 18 races over hurdles without winning and finds precious little off the bridle. Here For The Craic carries a penalty for his bumper victory and connections will be hoping the rain stays away as his best form has come on quick going. Dun Scaith's best effort came over a much longer trip while Illtakeitfromhere looked a bit one-paced when producing his effort at Cork so a chance is taken on the fitness of MOLLIES GENT. He showed much-improved form when attempting to make all at Punchestown in October and, with more progress likely, can lead this field home.
