Verdict

Having Nightmares finally won a point-to-point on her eleventh start between the flags but has been tailed off on both starts over regulation fences. Souvenir Royal has shown the occasional glimpse of ability but not for some time while Royal Sam was beaten a distance over hurdles at Bellewstown last week. Jakros has had problems with his jumping but this small field may enable him to take more care at his fences though he'll do well to contain THE GREAT SHANGHAI. He gradually improved between the flags and made a winning debut under Rules in a Cork maiden hurdle before a cracking effort in a similar event to this at Galway. He was very well supported but just failed to hold Tabhachtach on that occasion and this should prove well within his capabilities.
