Verdict

This was won last year by subsequent champion juvenile Our Conor and his trainer Dessie Hughes will be hoping INDIAN ICON can follow suit despite an opening defeat over hurdles at Thurles. A decent performer on the Flat, he's been fitted with a tongue strap and, coupled with the experience gained, it can help him go one better. Gerdago finished over 3l behind the selection that day and did the form no harm with a very good run behind Guitar Pete at Down Royal last weekend. Sin Miedo was a long way behind at Thurles and looks held but the newcomer Diesel Ten is one to keep an eye on after joining new connections since beating a big field over a mile on the Flat here.
