Verdict

Benash has spent the last couple of years mainly over hurdles and fences though he's produced some good runs on the Flat including when runner-up to Jack Daddy over this track and trip last time. CULLENTRY ROYAL was just touched off by Digeanta over this trip at Leopardstown then started favourite on the same track but his rider gave him far too much to do in the race won by 50/1 chance Writers Block. Billy Lee takes over the reigns and compensation awaits. Storm Away was just behind in that former event and must be considered while Katie T looked a very nice prospect when landing a Roscommon bumper a couple of weeks ago. Winning hurdler and bumper Prima Vista has reverted to the Flat in very good form over trips that have looked too short so he's an obvious threat.
