Verdict

Lash It On has never reached a place in eight attempts over hurdles but gained his first victory over fences at Downpatrick last month and this is such a poor race that he has to be considered. ALDERIMLI is 9lb higher than for her only success over timber but she ran well at Gowran last time and with Andrew Ring's claim to aid her cause she is handed the verdict. Coolking is better over fences as he showed when scoring in very heavy going at Sligo. He can revert to hurdles on a 15lb lower mark than the bigger obstacles so has to be a threat. Waterloo Chateau had a very long break after a good summer in 2010 but has returned in decent form and shouldn't be long in adding to his one success.
