Verdict

Loch Long was only headed close home over 2m2f at Galway and looks certain to get competitive as does Annie Other, who made Table Forty Six pull out the stops at Kilbeggan and is improving. Royal Choice is much better known as a chaser but ran very well behind Takeyourcapoff on her return to hurdling at Tramore and must be a threat. EYRE APPARENT has been frustrating but was happy to bowl along in front at Kilbeggan and his accurate jumping should have a few of these in trouble. He looks the one to be on in a tricky little race.
