Verdict

Uncle Henry gained the only success of his career over the course and distance in January and has been running over hurdles, though fell at Cork last month. Touch Of Gold is very consistent but has never won on the level unlike Commander Won, who has scored here three times and won over hurdles at Kilbeggan in June. Here For The Craic scored at Tipperary last month but has never won here in seven starts so this looks destined for NIMITZ, who just failed to catch Dawn Hoofer over 1m2f here last month then suffered the same fate when tackling this trip at Naas. Serefeli has won twice around here though at shorter trips.
