Verdict

Knockgraffon King makes his handicap debut over fences and has yet to prove himself while it's a surprise to see Carry Each Other in first-time blinkers after his victory in a moderate beginners' event at Thurles. WISE OSCAR has shown little over fences but joined Dessie Hughes in November and has improved markedly over hurdles. He's on a massive 23lb lower mark here and will be very difficult to beat. Shellys Creek jumps well and stays on stoutly in testing ground and any rain would aid her cause while Sea Master has dropped to a lowly mark and could battle on into a place.
