Verdict

EDUARD looked an unlucky loser behind Ifandbutwhynot here three weeks ago. Nicky Richards' unexposed bumper winner can go one better today with that experience under his belt. Michael O'Hare has put up a 10lb claimer on the penalised Gold Ability, who won at Galway and Downpatrick in August, but he looks to be facing a tough task while Art School was well beaten in two starts in bumpers. French Hollow is an out-and-out stayer on the Flat so may find this an insufficient test of stamina while King Of The Wolds may also need a bit further, though did win his bumper here.
