Verdict

Dibdabs started favourite on his debut for Maurice Barnes at Ayr in January but finished last. He had initially been with Willie Mullins and has returned to the champion trainer so better must be expected. Chakisto has been beaten a long way but Benrouge showed plenty of dash on his opening run at Cork and should improve. Lucky Seven also showed some potential behind Milan Bound at Fairyhouse but the strongest form belongs to THEATRE MILL, who ran well enough behind Pumbaa at Limerick in December to be handed the vote.
