Verdict

In receipt of 10lb from the two penalised winners, HENRY HIGGINS can gain his first victory over hurdles after his success on the Flat at Leopardstown a month ago. All of his three runs over hurdles were in Grade 1 or 2 company and this represents a big drop in class. Kevin Sexton's claim reduces Cape Glory's burden and his mount enters the fray in superb form though his recent victories have been over 2m4f. Indian Icon will be much more at home over this trip and he's taken as the main threat after landing a strong Kilbeggan handicap in good style last month.
