Verdict

Elishpour has really found his form in recent weeks, completing a double when just getting up to catch Political Policy over the track and trip last month. That was only the runner-up's second start over the trip and a couple pounds pull can see him reverse the form. All Body And Soul looks to have a good chance at the weights though is yet to prove he stays this far but TAGLIETELLE has a course and distance victory to his credit. Gordon Elliott's charge has been jumping with a limited amount of success but he's only 1lb higher than when scoring here two years ago and has definitely improved since then. Sweet Company is having his first start on the surface but has won on Turf and ran very well over timber at Leopardstown last month. Shadagann has been staying on over shorter and is on a very fair mark these days.
