Verdict

Caridadi went up 8lb for scoring ay Tramore before running poorly at Killarney. CLODY VALLEY was beaten six lengths in the former event but has made very good progress subsequently having been narrowly been beaten twice and looks the one to be with. Dual point-to-point winner Ballinasilla has yet to score in ten starts over fences but Mullaghmurphy Blue is perfectly capable of winning from this mark. The veteran Bellgrove hasn’t won for a very long time but has dropped to a basement mark and couldn’t get any lower.
