Verdict

Hazel Blue came good at Dundalk last time and had earlier finished ahead of Twistsandturns at Gowran. The latter went on to win at Naas but a couple of the older horses make more appeal. Top weight Al Fahidi was racing off a much higher mark at this time last year and an improved effort at Leopardstown last time suggests he can go close. But TAHAF beat Maal at Bellewstown last month before going close again at Galway on his latest start with Longfield Lad back in sixth - he gets the vote in a wide-open affair.
