Verdict

Double Portrait, has a penalty for his Cork bumper victory but looks a thorough stayer and will be suited by a stamina test. Imperial Way is also penalised and will need to do very much better than he did on his hurdling debut at Clonmel. Great Khan will be suited by stepping up to this trip for the first time and Mad Carew is one to note on his hurdling bow but this should go to SYMPA DES FLOS. He's been a short-priced beaten favourite in all three starts since arriving from France but has looked in need of this sort of trip and can recoup losses. Winning point-to-pointer Pallaskenry looks best of the remainder.
