Verdict

BIG JEMMY won this a year ago and can repeat the process despite a 12lb rise in the weights. He was narrowly beaten by today's rival Kilmurry Kid over the C&D in October when Robertstown Rover was behind and the revised weights point to his chances. The winner is improving and was travelling well when falling at Thurles last time so he looks a big threat along with Dunroe Boy, who ran his best race over fences at Down Royal on Boxing Day. Flamingos Gold was having just her fourth start over the bigger obstacles when runner-up at Wexford and looks well enough handicapped to make her presence felt.
