Verdict

Hair Oil Jimmy definitely has the ability to win this but he's refused twice in his last five starts and can hardly be trusted. Griesenau looks one for the future as he will need a test of stamina but may get it here in the heavy ground. Local Celebrity landed a Clonmel bumper in good style but his many followers soon knew their fate when he made his hurdling debut at Cork last month as he was carried out at the first. He looks certain to go well but ROURKE'S CROSS has to be the form pick on his latest effort behind the classy Sous Les Cieux at Fairyhouse as the winner has since gone on to success in a Grade 1 contest. True Character may do best of the remainder.
