Verdict

Back Of The Pack finished last in a Grade 3 at Leopardstown yesterday and is unlikely to take her chance here. BARKER's last five starts have been in Grade 1 company and he had his big day when beating Forpadydeplasterer by 15 lengths at Punchestown in April 2009. Nothing has gone right for him since but he gets the vote to kick-start his career. Carthalawn is a very useful performer on his day who generally doesn't quite get there at the highest level. He's in very good form at present and would take advantage if Barker doesn't come up with the goods. In Compliance is another to have won at Grade 1 level but that was way back in 2006 when he beat War Of Attrition in the John Durkan at Punchestown. He wasn't in that sort of form last season though he did manage a Listed success at Thurles just over a year ago.
