Verdict

Harrison's Cave was sent to the Breeders' Cup to contest the marathon but hated the dirt surface and the run should be ignored. An earlier victory over 1m5f at Navan puts him in the frame for this. Rising Wind has only won once and is probably a few pounds high despite slipping in the weights while it's difficult to know what to make of Ri An Domhnaigh on his handicap debut after he scored over 1m3f at Limerick. Tugboat was behind Harrison's Cave at the Curragh but beat a big field over 1m2f on his only subsequent start at Navan. He'll improve again and should go well but the percentage call is RUN WITH THE WIND, who scored over the C&D last month and still looks very fairly treated despite a 7lb jump in the weights.
