In depth

Verdict

Lord Rapscallion has a huge weight to carry courtesy of a double at Dundalk at the back-end of last year. Silver Service beat a huge field over 6f on heavy ground at the Curragh in October and has continued to run well which is why she's 14lb higher. Sirjack Thomas didn't take to hurdling earlier this year but made a decent return to the Flat with a close fourth at Gowran. WAR HERO was behind in that latter event but is generally very consistent and may just have needed the run. He can take this with his rider's claim a bonus. Turbine finished first past in a Cork handicap last May but was disqualified after testing positive for a banned substance. He hasn't run since later that month and though he's 0-27 on Turf he's raced in better company. His stable companion Atlas is the only course and distance winner in the line-up and is well treated if back to his best.
