Verdict

This is tougher than the chase Drop Anchor won at Roscommon and he's been upped 5lb. Red Or White will also need to improve further after winning at Tramore last week but may well do so. Glenstar has slipped a few pounds down the weights since placing over these fences last year but Boss Croaker has proved best over hurdles so far. Bottle Rattler has bits of form but is inconsistent so ROSS NA RIGH makes most appeal, despite carrying top weight, on the back of his latest second at Roscommon.
