Verdict

Benhego won twice for Gary Moore at Fontwell in 2009 but hasn't been seen since a narrow defeat on the Flat in 2011. The veteran Marshim has only won once over hurdles but is generally thereabouts from this sort of mark while Whatdreamsrmadeof, though 7lb higher than for his victory at Fairyhouse in January, hasn't been running badly and is likely to get involved. Clancy Strand was just touched off over fences at Downpatrick last time but isn't as well handicapped over hurdles so it's DE BENNO who gets the verdict. He was having only his fourth start over hurdles when scoring at Cork a month ago and ran very well from an 8lb higher mark there three weeks later.
