Verdict

Carningli's second to Red Sherlock in a Listed bumper at Cheltenham might be the best form on offer in this but there are several equally unexposed types in opposition. JOSHUA LANE was easy to back on his debut at Naas last month but only found Willie Mullins' Shaneshill too good having made up significant ground in the straight. The winner went on to follow up easily at Fairyhouse so Edward Harty's charge gets the nod in this as both Herons Heir and Nathans Pride are having their first run for a new yard today. This looks a big ask for the returning Seven Nation Army and ex-pointers Parting Way and Themanfrom Minella but Oscarteea looks a decent sort and makes more appeal than On Tour.
