Verdict

Caheronaun bounced back to form at Thurles though her task was made easier by falls by rivals. She's likely to prove difficult to beat, but PLAYING also won last time and didn't need any good fortune. He's quite nicely handicapped and is given the vote to complete the double. Zekarya has more scope than most though potential punters would need to forgive a poor run at Fairyhouse while Hidden Crack reverted to hurdles without success last time after landing a handicap over fences at Clonmel in good style.
