Verdict

The veteran Muskatsturm, once rated over 100, was bought out of a Catterick claimer last October and made a winning start over hurdles for new connections at Ballinrobe last month. There's no reason why he shouldn't again go well despite his advanced age as this is a very moderate contest. Harangue was beaten over 14 lengths that day and though that was a slight improvement on previous form he looks held. YACHVILI last won a race two years ago and he hasn't been running well in the main but gave notice that he'd dropped sufficiently in the ratings to get back on the scoresheet when runner-up to Dunroe Boy at Ballinrobe and can return to winning ways. Tony Martin and Ruby Walsh team up with Kennysprincess, who has shown nothing over shorter trips though attracted support at Ballinrobe last time.
