Verdict

KNOCKANARRIGAN can hardly be opposed here and should complete a hat-trick. His two latest victories have been over fences but Dessie Hughes is taking advantage of his much lower hurdles rating and he'll take some beating. Wandering Aengus looks the main threat after a narrow defeat by Abolitionist at Punchestown where he looked more at home on the quicker ground. Sarah Battle and Cool Oscar were behind and look held but Fresh By Nature bounced back to form with a very good run behind Protaras on fast going at Down Royal. Polish Partisan is still a maiden after nine starts over timber and is making his handicap debut with a huge weight.
