Verdict

Aidan O'Brien has already had success in this sphere recently so the Dylan Thomas filly Angel Chorus should come in for support on her debut. Palace Hall is another newcomer to keep an eye on but experience should count here and COULEUR FRANCE should have benefited enough from his run behind Bonisland at Roscommon in October to take this. Afatcat appeared to find heavy ground against him at Thurles last time and though the consistent Quickpick Vic looks certain to be thereabouts he may find the selection has improved past him.
