Verdict

The decision to put Start Me Up back over hurdles hasn't really paid dividends and he's worth opposing again here. Derg Princess has been prolific in point-to-points and has shown some ability under Rules but doesn't look particularly well treated and more interesting is Tyrone House, who won three times over fences in the UK and ran better than expected in a Kilbeggan novice hurdle last month. JOHN THE SOLDIER had Court Knee back in third and Tales Of Milan fourth when springing a surprise at Tramore at the end of May. But that win was long overdue and he may just find the necessary to follow up here.
