Verdict

Bullock Harbour is the only one of these to have won over the course which he did in June but his two subsequent runs have been disappointing. Orpheus Valley ran his best race over fences for some time when runner-up to Kalellshan at Killarney last month and, as that was only his second start for 18 months he looks a big threat to all. If the going dries out a little than GOOD LUCK CHUCK should have no problems taking this as he could hardly have been more impressive on soft ground at Tipperary in July. His previous victory over fences came on fast going so further rain wouldn't help but he still looks the one to be on. Clarkey last won over a year ago but he's now on a 5lb lower mark so shouldn't be dismissed despite a moderate run last time.
