Verdict

WHITE STAR LINE, placed three times over fences at Cheltenham, had never won a race over the bigger obstacles before a very impressive success in the Kerry National at Listowel last month. The assessor raised him 13lb so it's hardly a surprise to see him in a conditions race and he should add to Dessie Hughes' excellent record in the event. Make A Track is potentially a smart performer over fences as he was having just his second start when beating the useful Vesper Bell at Thurles where the going was very testing. Becauseicouldntsee has won just once over fences in 19 starts which is a poor return for a horse who was placed in last year's Kim Muir and who has always competed at a high level. Ros Brin's only victory over fences was on this track but he has a lot to find against three useful rivals.
