Verdict

The 10-year-old Hide The Evidence was second in a maiden at Wolverhampton in February and won a little race over hurdles at Wexford the following month. He could struggle conceding weight all round here however. Smoky Cloud was a little disappointing at Listowel earlier this month and has a bit to prove at present but GRA GEAL MO CHROI has been showing signs of a revival lately and can't be dismissed lightly.
