Verdict

BECKWITH STAR last ran over fences in January last year where he won very easily. He's been hurdling subsequently but has always looked like a chaser and looks well enough handicapped to make a successful reappearance. Quartetto was also hurdling on his two latest starts in the spring but his earlier narrow defeat over fences at Leopardstown suggests he's reasonably treated despite a 7lb rise. Michael Hourigan is having an excellent season so A Fine Young Man has to be respected after a recent run at Wexford and his victory at Cork in March places him high on the list of likely winners. She's Got Grit is a smart hunter who starts off in handicaps off a lowly mark and should improve.
