Verdict

Hidden Diamond is back over fences after a couple of runs over hurdles but off a much higher mark than over the smaller obstacles. High Desert is only a couple of pounds higher than when second at Tramore last month and should again beat fifth Hidden Crack, who finished fourth at Killarney last week. Rockaboya will be a threat again, despite top weight, and Sea Master was favourite when fourth at Ballinrobe last time and will enjoy the step up in distance. But SOLSTICE KNIGHT, with Barry Geraghty doing the steering again, can confirm Fairyhouse running with the latter on slightly worse terms and double up.
