Verdict

DEAR SIRE has an obvious chance given he found only one too good over course and distance on his recent reappearance. Strike West has finished runner-up here but was still well beaten though The Linksman is expected to finish a lot closer for Brian Ellison today. Bellamy and Cousin Oscar have form in Irish point-to-points and debut under Rules while Haighall is out of a hurdles winner and a newcomer to note.
