Verdict

The veteran Powerstation raced against the likes of Big Buck's and Hurricane Fly last season and is probably still capable of running well here though WON IN THE DARK should prove too good. Sabrina Harty's charge has also run against those two champions recently and though a big disappointment at Punchestown last time he found the two miles much too short and this is more like his trip. Oneeightofamile is progressing with each run and the principals will need to be somewhere near their best to hold him off. John Kiely's charge beat a huge field over this trip in a Punchestown handicap in May and has since scored on the Flat at Limerick.
