Verdict

HOLY WATER took up the running at the last at Listowel but was caught close home by Have A Few. Today's quicker ground can help him hang on this time. Prince Kup, who finished a close third, was a winner on the Flat in France in testing going and may find this on the lively side. Pashtunwali, a bumper winner at Killarney in July, never threatened the odds-on Roconga at Cork but further progress should see him in the frame. Jeremy's Jet may do best of the remainder.
