Verdict

FAIR DILEMMA scored over hurdles and fences at Listowel in September before jumping poorly over the bigger obstacles at Tipperary. He's on a fair mark over timber and gets the vote. Misca Musca landed a minor handicap at Navan and though unable to cope with a 7lb rise at Gowran ran well for a long way before fading. Supreme Bob may be better suited by further but has dropped to his lowest mark though he was behind Tinas Exhibition at Tramore on New Year's Day. The latter is still a maiden over timber after 18 starts but Whosaidso arrives on a fair mark over hurdles and didn't run badly behind Midnight Gunner in a much better race at Fairyhouse last month. Imperial Shabra enters the fray on a 21lb lower mark than over fences so shouldn't be dismissed despite a big weight.
