Verdict

After back-to-back wins at Limerick and Sligo last month, Roving Lad will be fancied to complete the hat-trick here under AP McCoy. A double penalty may prove his undoing, however, while improving Uttoxeter scorer Lucky Vic has an extra 7lb to carry. OCA DE THAIX has won three times over fences under Rules and seven times in point-to-points but ran an excellent race over hurdles at Worcester last month and is fancied to land this with Charlotte Evans claiming 7lb. Gap Of Dunloe won over 2m4f here in April but has something to prove now having been pulled up at Ludlow subsequently.
