Verdict

Prosperity Square hasn't run since December and it's three years since he won a race while Fort George has been performing in point-to-points and hunter chases so will find this much tougher. Tylers Cottage has had very little experience for his age and hasn't run since September so he could just need this before heading to Galway. A Decent Excuse is 9lb higher than his only victory over fences while the assessor looks to have got to Close Review after he completed an early summer double. THE LADY GRANUAILE looked as though she was on the way back to form when runner-up over timber at Roscommon and her close second over fences there in September gives her a fine chance of adding to her tally over fences.
