Verdict

SAILORS WARN is much better known as a useful hurdler these days and arrives in top form having beaten Thousand Stars on this track a month ago. He'll think he's been let loose with this weight and looks the one to beat. Footprint and Indian Landing were separated by half-a-length at Galway in the summer and there's nothing between them again though the latter has a slight fitness advantage after a couple of runs at Dundalk. Hes Our Music has never won on Turf but has gone close on several occasions and was in good form on Polytrack when last seen in November. The heavier the ground the better for Vasoni, who has won four times on going with plenty of give and looks nicely treated.
