Verdict

Big Secret may have beaten Island Wood at Tipperary but for falling at the second last, though that was over fences and he appears to need a stiffer test than this. Tullymackan and Unwanted Gift have both won between the flags and would also be expected to do better over further while Carra Coranna, who has shown plenty of ability in bumpers, hasn't run since last May. LUDDSDENENE is only moderate but this shouldn't take much winning and he hasn't performed badly against better opposition than he's likely to meet here.
