Verdict

Stormy Air comes out best on official ratings though has struggled this year after ending the last campaign in excellent form. He has an obvious chance of returning to winning ways with Seamie Heffernan booked but CASTLE GUEST will take some beating. Michael Halford's veteran likes a bit of cut in the ground, as he showed when a close third in a huge field over this trip at the Curragh in September, and he'll be ready after a prep run at Navan. The stable also run Yamoto but he's only won on the all-weather and the remainder are all a long way behind on official figures.
