Verdict

FAR AWAY SO CLOSE looks a cut above these. He's gone close on more than one occasion over fences and looks to have a good opportunity here with a recent run behind Jenari at Naas under his belt. Lord Gale has a string of placed efforts over hurdles to his credit but Spot Fine has a fitness advantage and was still going well when brought down on his chasing bow at Thurles last month. Dingaling had Bruach Na Mara behind when scoring at Listowel in June and makes his chasing debut today but Daring Article was rated higher than him over hurdles.
