A bad mistake at the last may have cost LETTER OF CREDIT the race at Wexford last time and though he's been prone to making errors he's handed the vote in the hope he can get round without mishap. Gentleman Duke was moderate over hurdles but looks like being a much better chaser judged on his two runs over fences. He has to be a threat but winning hurdler Raise Hell has been a disappointment over the bigger obstacles to date. Both Blazing Sonnet and Holeinthewall Bar did well enough over timber to be considered.
