Verdict

LOS AMIGOS was conceding Grand Jesture 1lb when beating him a length in a beginners' chase at Fairyhouse last month, his opening run over fences. He's since run well in a Punchestown handicap and can confirm the form over timber. Cullentry Royal has been going well on the Flat and has enough decent hurdles form to his credit to be considered while Rightdownthemiddle landed a maiden hurdle at Punchestown in October and performed with credit against some smart novices here last month. None of the remainder can be discounted in a tight little handicap.
