Verdict

Laura and Michael Hourigan won this last year but Hans Crescent hasn't been showing enough for a family repeat. PIRES has been out of sorts over hurdles but his very close third behind Credit Swap in the Cambridgeshire at Newmarket is by far the best form on view and he should take this for Tony Martin. The ex-French Run For Sol looks the main threat as he has been in fine form of late scoring over timber at Sligo before a good second to Sense Of Purpose over this trip at Killarney. Banyan Tree was a classy juvenile for Ballydoyle and showed himself capable of winning for new connections with a couple of fair recent runs over hurdles.
