Verdict

Tony Martin took advantage of Gallant Oscar's lenient hurdles mark to beat a huge field at Navan in January but he's a massive 26lb higher over fences. Castle Wings was gaining his first victory over fences at the 13th attempt when taking advantage of Blood Cotil's fall at Cork and though he was fortunate he's not badly treated. SAOIRSE DUN was in excellent form at this time a year ago and though a long way behind today's rival Folsom Blue at Punchestown last month he will have needed the run after a long absence. He can bounce back and take this though Los Amigos is in cracking form and won't go down without a fight after his excellent second in the Thyestes Chase.
