Verdict

Jimmy Mangan has won this twice in the past three years and though punters would need to forgive a shocking run by KILCREA when strongly fancied at Tipperary last time his charge, a winning point-to-pointer and bumper, can make amends here. Shattered Dream attempted to make all at Wexford but could only stay on at one pace when headed at the second last. He should be suited by this longer trip while Sophies Shadow, a winner between the flags in October, will have come on from her hurdling debut at Clonmel three weeks ago. Noble Pageant has had 20 runs over timber without winning.
