In depth

Verdict

This could be one for the market watchers with so many unknowns but Lastofthepilots should get into the frame, despite an absence since a moderate run on heavy ground in November. BIRZALI has also been absent since the same month but a repeat of his run behind Mount Colah at Down Royal last summer would probably be good enough. Best Value has scope for improvement and ran quite well at Cork last time while Coolmill has enough form in the book to get competitive. Winning point-to-pointer Soul Season may do best of the remainder.
