Verdict

This has attracted a strong line-up but ZUZKA's close third behind Cheltenham hopes Jezki and Champagne Fever at Fairyhouse in December is the strongest form on view and she gets the vote as she was nowhere near her best there the following month. Shrapnel had Rory O'Moore behind when scoring at Galway in October and his two latest defeats have come over much longer trips so he's one to keep an eye on while the selection's stablemate, Twigline, may have won a Listed contest at Sandown but for coming down at the last. Moscow Mannon had no answers in Grade 2 company last time but the three who finished in front of him are all very useful.
