Verdict

WILDCATTED is only a four-year-old and showed much improved form when beating subsequent winner Georgie over a slightly shorter trip here last month. Not surprisingly, he's gone up 13lb in the weights but still looks reasonably treated and can follow up. Tabhachtach followed a spell over fences with two fine runs over timber, following a close second at Navan by beating World Citizen at Punchestown. He's been raised 8lb but is still progressing and should go close. Gudnis Gracious Me scored over fences at Roscommon and can revert to hurdling on a lower mark while the likes of Fairy Court and Ivy Glen are lightly-raced types who would be expected to make progress.
