Verdict

Golan Guy landed a strong maiden over two miles here at the beginning of the month before unseating Ruby Walsh when close up at Sligo on Monday. He has no problems with this longer trip and is reasonably treated so looks certain to go close. Barney King scored over the C&D from 5lb lower last year and didn't run badly over the minimum trip at Navan when last seen in January. Misspublican hasn't had much experience and can make some progress while Third Level Tom is much better handicapped over hurdles than fences and can make his presence felt. LADY CHATTERBOX had only been showing moderate form before a much improved effort behind Vinnes Friend in a Tipperary handicap last week and can take this as she looks the type to continue on the upgrade.
