Verdict

Lucky Spring was runner-up in this in 2008 and after a long break showed some promise on the Flat at Sligo in September. Jacks Island usually runs well here, isn't badly handicapped, and will be better for his recent return to action. Quartetto won a chase here in February and a good run on the level at Navan last month suggests reverting to hurdles won't be a problem while Harold's Cross hasn't had much racing and is the type to improve. Karkari was left clear when his only serious challenger fell at the last in a Downpatrick maiden and is now 11lb higher than when beaten in a Tramore handicap in August. BINOCULAR has been running very well without quite getting there and two recent efforts behind Jack Cool would probably be good enough for this despite him climbing the weights.
