Verdict

GEORGIE, runner-up in a Limerick handicap over hurdles last month, went to Galway for a handicap over fences a fortnight later and came home with his head in his chest. He's on such a lowly mark that he will be a short price to complete a quick double and should do so. Drumlister is 13lb higher than his only victory over hurdles and will find this tough while Musawama isn't well handicapped compared to his chase rating. High Talk has been well beaten over fences on his last two starts but did much better when narrowly beaten over hurdles in August and looks the main threat.
