Verdict

MR SMITH was one of three winners for Charles Byrnes at Roscommon on Tuesday after landing a massive gamble. He'll obviously go up by much more than the 6lb penalty he receives for this so has to be the selection. L'attesa is also up 6lb for a comfortable victory over the course and distance and will ensure the selection doesn't have things his own way while Bell Of The Ball twice finished runner-up here earlier this summer and has had a run on the Flat subsequently. Aurora's Dream is tried in blinkers after several one-paced efforts while Drumhart reverts to hurdling on a 19lb lower mark following his victory over fences here in June.
