Verdict

Gold Creek, who is 0-15 over fences, gained a surprise victory over hurdles here three weeks ago before falling at halfway over the bigger obstacles at Naas. Ciankyle appeared to enjoy the heavy conditions when runner-up at Clonmel so could do with some rain but the veteran Bellgrove, who ended a long losing run with an easy course and distance success last month, likes the going and should make a bold bid despite being 5lb out of the handicap. Dontdooddson landed a Killarney handicap and was in touch when falling two out at Clonmel but PRETTY LITTLE LIAR looks the one to beat. She'd been in top form over hurdles, slamming her rivals in a Fairyhouse handicap last month, before making a winning debut over fences here three weeks ago and a mark of 109 looks manageable.
