Verdict

Carlito Brigante was pulled out of the Plate on Wednesday and this should be easier though he has a huge weight for a horse having just his third start over fences. Jamsie Hall was pulled up in the Plate but had earlier finished just two lengths behind today's rival Vicrix Gale at Limerick when conceding 18lb and can reverse the form with Tony Martin's mare, who has shot up the weights after her hat-trick. Wellforth was behind in that Limerick event but ran very well here on Tuesday but it's RAZ DE MAREE who is handed the vote. He's only had two runs over fences and appreciated the test of stamina when scoring comfortably at Wexford. He's rated 125 over hurdles so gets in here on a fair mark. Agus A Vic is entering the veteran stage but is still capable of a big run with his low weight and is one to consider.
