Verdict

Oiche Mhaith Boy completed a hat-trick in the spring and is only 2lb higher than his last victory, though he hasn't run well in two recent starts over timber. Kevin Manning was on board DALMATIA when his mount just failed to hold the late thrust of Rashaan over the track and trip in August and the combination can go one better. Mydor is always capable of winning a race such as this but ran poorly over fences at the beginning of the month while Along The Shore keeps going up in the weights without winning, though she can take her revenge on Limerick conqueror Caridadi over this longer trip. The three-year-old Sackfullofdreams won three minor races in France and will be interesting when sent hurdling.
