Verdict

It's a very long time since Cavite Beta ran and he's likely to need the run while Glenconkeye was badly out of form when last seen in January. Whisky Galore has been running poorly over fences so this looks between the very progressive Voluptueux, an impressive winner at Roscommon, and LITTLE KING ROBIN. The latter gets the nod as his overall form is of a slightly higher calibre and he warmed up with a second place on the Flat at Galway last week though he was beaten a very long way.
