Verdict

Drumlee will be winning soon if his close third to Glen Beg at Naas is anything to go by and he'll love the ground. Winning bumper Blue Bicycle has definitely improved over the past few runs and wasn't far behind the very useful The Tullow Tank at Naas in November. Black Spot On has also done better since meeting heavy going and finished runner-up in a huge field at Fairyhouse a couple of weeks ago. DANEKING has started a short price on all three starts for Willie Mullins after landing a Doncaster handicap for John Gosden in October. He hasn't been beaten far in any of them and might have won but for a couple of errors last time so gets the vote to gain compensation.
