Verdict

Royal Chief went up 4lb for finishing runner-up at Downpatrick and couldn't cope at Killarney where he started favourite. GET MORE survived a last-fence scare to score here on his returned to action when this was run over slightly shorter a year ago. He hasn't run since falling on his next start a month later but obviously goes well fresh so a follow-up looks on the cards. Up Sluggarh won here in April but is 10lb higher and has failed to complete in his next two starts. Personal Shopper has had 18 runs over fences without winning but is 13lb lower than over hurdles and can be given a chance from this mark.
