Verdict

The past two winners of this ultra-tough handicap have been 33/1 and 20/1. Galway Plate winner and runner-up Carlingford Lough and Quantitativeeasing meet again and there should be little between them on that form though the winner has much more scope and can confirm the form. Terminal, who was well beaten at Galway, looks held though should get closer with ground conditions very much in his favour. JACKSONSLADY finished third in the big one beaten 9l but she was having only her seventh start over fences and with the weights in her favour she can turn the tables and take this. Double Seven has completed a hat-trick in really good style and if handling the much softer ground will be a threat to all.
