Verdict

It's very difficult to see past LORD OF ISENAY after his impressive debut behind The Folkes Choice at Limerick a month ago. He was always travelling nicely that day and it was only inexperience that caught him out in the latter stages. He should have no problems going one better. Acclaimed Piper looks best of those with experience over timber and his best run was over today's C&D in August but Salazaar, who makes his debut over hurdles, has a penalty to carry for his victory on the Flat here in 2010.
