Verdict

Jason McKeown, who won this in 2008, will ensure the consistent point-to-pointer Judge Deed gets a good ride while leading amateur Mikey O'Connor's presence on board Not Before Eight suggests Tom Cooper's charge is fancied for this. WARHEAD has had only four starts over fences, landing a Beginners' event on his debut at Clonmel and unshipping his rider on his latest start in the Irish National here. This is a big drop in class and he can return to winning ways. Sharadi returned to action after a long break to run very well at Killarney while both Optimum Force and Optimus Prime are in cracking form at present and are obvious threats.
