Verdict

Good As Gold is an interesting booking for Ruby Walsh as she may be suited by dropping back to this trip. Miss Xian has been racing over much further than this including when scoring over 3m on this track. MRS MAC VEALE went up 5lb for her Limerick victory but it didn't prevent another impressive success at Punchestown and, though up another 8lb, she looks capable of completing a hat-trick. Run 'N' Jump hasn't had much experience but looked progressive behind Alpha And Omega here last week while useful chaser Lead Kindly Light reverts to hurdles on a much lower mark and would be a threat if ready after a break.
