Verdict

Dazzlers Day makes his handicap debut over fences and has yet to prove he stays this far but it's no problem for the veteran Kilbane River, who likes it around here. PONMEWORD is only moderate and ran a shocker when favourite at Thurles but he'd won two of his previous three and was unlucky in the other and will be difficult to beat in that kind of form. Kilcara Boy has never won over fences and was a long way behind the selection here on St Stephens Day.
