Verdict

A tricky handicap to fathom but DIAMOND SHOWER is given the vote as he showed much improved form behind Luke's Benefit at Limerick earlier this month and the winner followed up three days later. Stonehatchetmad has been a bit unfortunate not to lose his maiden tag recently though he's now gone 16 starts over timber without winning. Would You Do That has been running well and has an obvious chance if able to repeat his latest run behind St Killan's Run over 2m here, while Satwa King bounced back to form at Limerick last time though that was over 2m5f on his favourite track. Rakamasi was still in front when falling two out over fences here earlier this month and though he's only run once over hurdles in five years he's well enough handicapped to make his presence felt.
