Verdict

INDIAN ICON's only victory to date came on fast ground at Roscommon but he's been in very good form over hurdles on testing going and should prove better than his rating of 81 suggests. He's handed the vote though there are plenty of threats including the lightly-raced Manhattan Swing, who ended the last campaign with a narrow defeat at Navan. To Choose looks reasonably treated and has been in action over hurdles while Waydownsouth's last success was on very heavy going at Tramore last January. Windsor Queen could provide the main threat as her victories on the level and over hurdles have both been on heavy going.
