In depth


ATTRIBUTION had been racing at a very high level before scoring at Limerick and, though this is no easy task on his handicap debut, is handed the vote. Tom George sends the experienced Noche De Reyes over from the UK and he could hardly have won more easily at Perth, though a 7lb rise won't help in this better race. Jessica Harrington has two entries and both have chances though Neverushacon needs to get his confidence back after a fall at Punchestown. Dicosimo has been inconsistent in novice company but Killarney Court won a novice chase easily here in October and would be a threat if his jumping holds up. Jack The Wire had been racing over much further before dropping back to score over 2m1f at Tipperary but an 11lb rise for that victory looks harsh.
