Verdict

Raggletagglegypsy had Skiboski just behind when they occupied the places at Tramore three weeks ago but is by no means certain to confirm the form with the latter, who isn't always inclined to use his undoubted ability. Resolute Bay has enough decent form in the book to be a threat while the combination of Tony Martin and Ruby Walsh can never be ignored so High Cian may be capable of better. However, he was a few lengths behind MARLOS MOMENT when the latter was runner-up to Baily Green at Cork a month ago and there's no reason why Mark McNiff's charge shouldn't confirm the form and take this.
