Verdict

Dibella is the only four-year-old in the line-up and is progressing fast. She followed victory over a huge field of maidens at Navan with a fine run in a Fairyhouse Grade 3 and has a real chance from this mark. King Of Redfield is a fast-ground specialist and is unlikely to have conditions in his favour but Ferris Bueller has done well recently on going quicker than he likes so is in the frame for this. Flemensford alternates between hurdles and fences though his victories at the backend of last year were over the smaller obstacles and he's not much higher in the weights here. Boland's Corner made most to land a Cork maiden in first-time blinkers last month but this is much tougher and can go to OUR ERIC, a once very useful hurdler who bounced right back to form after a lay-off to win convincingly at Limerick and has been given another little break to freshen him up.
