Verdict

This has produced a much better field than could have been anticipated though both Mr Cracker and Muirhead are much better known as chasers these days. The former landed a Listowel handicap last month but appeared to find fast ground against him at Down Royal while the once high-class hurdler Muirhead finished fourth in the bet365 at Sandown last time and hasn't won over timber for two years. OILILY scored on the Flat at this time a year ago and has had just two runs so far this year. Her latest came in a Grade 1 behind Glens Melody at Punchestown where the heavy ground was against her and with ideal conditions she will take some beating. Edeymi is useful on his day but fell on his chasing bow at Tramore and may have had his confidence dented
