Verdict

Another tough one for punters to unravel but SWEENEY TUNES, who has been running well off a 21lb higher mark over fences, is well enough handicapped for this and Jane Mangan's claim is a bonus. Rattan bounced back to winning form over fences last time but should have no problems reverting to hurdles and the five-year-old Nearly Nama'D looked progressive when scoring at Galway last month. Jennies Jewel is a tough and consistent handicapper while Viaduct Joey reappeared after a break with a battling victory on heavy ground at Galway last month and any rain would aid his cause.
