Verdict

Original Option wasn't beaten far in a Grade 3 at Cork in October but has been a big disappointment subsequently. Celtic Wish has been outpaced in the latter stages over two miles so this longer trip may be to his advantage, but Curling has had enough opportunities and is looking very one-paced. Winning point-to-pointer King Of The Refs is hard to fancy after a very poor effort at Navan in January though he's better than that but this can go to SEREIN, disqualified after finishing first past the post in a Fairyhouse bumper on fast ground and consistent on going too soft for him over timber. Winning point-to-pointer Resolute Bay has come up against strong opposition over hurdles and looks certain to get competitive.
