Verdict

THE CRAFTY BUTCHER failed to land the odds on his hurdling bow at Cork a week ago. He found Blossom Gate too good but had today's rival Coolmill eight lengths behind with Vintage Supreme beaten even further and can confirm superiority in this. Futuramic hasn't looked like winning yet but was placed over a shorter trip here back in January while Fitzcarraldo also has bits of form that could see him figure. Steady Ed has a bit to find and Agamemnon hasn't raced since 2009.
