Verdict

Realt Mor hasn't won for over two years which isn't surprising as he's been campaigned at a very high level after landing a Grade 1 at Fairyhouse. He hasn't run since November and this is tough with Foildubh looking difficult to beat as he's another who normally races at a higher level and is in good form. Urano stays extreme distances but may be better with a bit of give in the ground so it's the in-form RAVISHED who gets the vote. He completed a double in a very tough Killarney handicap a couple of weeks ago and is still on the upgrade so a 5lb rise should be a problem. Silver Tassie hasn't had much luck recently but is perfectly capable of a big run at his best while the useful hunter Rohan's Pride is nicely handicapped and can go well.
