Verdict

Jessica Harrington has won half of the last eight renewals and relies on Sandymount Duke, who ran poorly over hurdles on his first two starts but has improved in bumpers. Archive landed a Leopardstown bumper then ran respectably in the Champion Bumper at Aintree so has to be on the shortlist as he makes his hurdling debut while Iffjack is another first-timer to keep an eye on. ORDINARY WORLD showed promise in two starts over timber at the backend of last year before a decent effort in a Tramore bumper last month. This is no easy task but he'll improve and gets the vote. Shadagann made a promising start over hurdles at Fairyhouse while easy point-to-point winner Ballyoisin could be anything. Limini completed a hat-trick on the Flat in minor company in France last summer and is an obvious threat representing the champion trainer.
