Verdict

He's Our Man, Koko Lane and Thomas Edison have all displayed useful jumping form and are preferred in order. He's Our Man has fitness assured and is very much at home on quick ground whereas Koko Lane may well need the run and Thomas Edison has shown his best when conditions have been soft or testing. However, they do have to concede plenty of weight to the younger brigade here. Stepping Down has posted runner-up efforts on both starts, the most recent of which only came in claiming company and CARDINAL PALACE makes greater appeal. He has not been strongly supported in the market on either of his last two starts but has acquitted himself really well, especially when hunting up Zarkiyr at Tipperary when last seen. The form looks strong as the third that day, Teoirim, has gone on to land a decent handicap at Leopardstown this week.
