In depth

Verdict

HI BIG MAN split subsequent winners Reizovic and Boston Bob in a battle of heads at Punchestown in February and a repeat should be good enough here. Indian Tiger ran well behind the useful Shadow Eile at Down Royal and should improve while there was obviously something badly amiss when Cairdin almost pulled up when a strong fancy at Gowran in March. Mags Mullins' charge had looked potentially very useful when chasing home the classy Samain at Punchestown earlier and is an obvious threat if over his problems. Tom Horn was a big disappointment at Cork and Zadarska hasn't looked a stable star to date though both are capable of improving and are no forlorn hopes.
