Verdict

This looks a virtual match between previous winner BENTELIMAR and Shield. The latter is useful and certainly won't go down without a fight but Philip Fenton's charge has the greater scope after making a smooth winning debut over timber at Killarney, though he was helped by the runner-up going lame after the last. Barring accidents, the other pair will be contesting minor money.
