Verdict

PRIORS GOLD has won twice over hurdles this year and looks to have a good opportunity to open his account on the Flat here. Gordon Elliot's charge is better than Bollistick, Maggie Aron and Rock Relief over timber and the biggest threat could come from the less exposed trio headed by Irish import Uncut Stone. The latter wasn't far behind the selection at Bellewstown in July and has his first start for new connections here. Barachiel may improve for the longer trip, but Lileo is having his first outing since May last year.
