Verdict

Another small field but again an intriguing contest in store. Art Of Payroll probably has most to do as he only won a Cork maiden narrowly, though he had more in hand than the official verdict suggests. Dalasiri looked a very smart prospect when landing a conditions race at Punchestown when there were several useful performers behind but he couldn't handle the step up to Grade 1 company in France subsequently when DIAKALI produced a brilliant performance to score by seven lengths. Willie Mullins' youngster is engaged in the Morgiana Hurdle next week and should be ready for this. Jessica Harrington wastes no time bringing out Mr Fiftyone after his superb debut success over hurdles at Fairyhouse on Wednesday and he'll have a fitness advantage over his two main rivals.
