Verdict

A strong line-up for this very good prize includes last year's winner Slieveardagh, who is 16lb higher this time. Fosters Cross is invariably competitive both over fences and hurdles and is no forlorn hope, despite a huge weight, but the ultra-consistent veteran Dolphin Bay is on his highest-ever mark over timber on his 16th start. False Economy is progressing nicely and is capable of a big run despite a 7lb rise for scoring at Ballinrobe while Action Master has been in good form, though he's another climbing the weights. IDARAH has definitely improved over fences since arriving from the UK and can revert to hurdles on what looks a lenient mark. Philip Enright has been on board for his last two runs and can continue his winning association with Paul Cashman's charge. The lightly-raced Pozyc looks a big threat though he may just need further than this.
