Verdict

Gordon Elliott has won two of the five renewals and CATS FOR CASH has little to beat in this. The latter disappointed at Kilbeggan last time but found only one too good at the same track before that and a repeat should see him off the mark. Argent Et Or has returned a losing favourite in both starts in bumpers though is related to winning hurdlers and may finish closer today while point-to-point winner Mats Hall is fitted with a tongue-tie for his hurdling bow. This is easier than Laureate’s latest task over hurdles at Punchestown but Gangsters Paradise was still well beaten when third at Listowel.
