Verdict

Another marathon full of jumpers. Clondaw Warrior, three times a winning bumper, won a charity sweeptakes at Fairyhouse last month but hadn't been in the best of form previously. Winning hurdler Little Green started favourite for a handicap at Limerick on Sunday but looked in need of the run after a long break and had no answer to SPEED DIAL. The winner has a 5lb penalty to contend with and will be having his 10th start of the year but he's already won three times and can add to that tally here. Ionisphere has been chasing but won this last year from just 2lb lower so has to be a threat along with Faranadooney, who has been in good form over hurdles over the past few weeks.
