Verdict

Elusive Time won this a year ago and looks to have been primed for another crack as he's only 1lb higher. He was drawn 27 last year and is in three this time and KATIYMANN, fifth a year ago when staying on strongly, is taken to gain revenge from stall 22. The latter's stable companion Terzetto is a very progressive three-year-old who looks well handicapped after going up just 4lb for landing a tough handicap here in July while Sirjack Thomas, another from the younger brigade, was staying on strongly over 7f at Leopardstown. David O'Meara does very well with his raiders and Firmament looked back to his best at York last week so is greatly respected as is Band Of Outlaws, who looked like winning here last time until headed close home.
