Verdict

Jessica Marcialis was successful in this last year and the useful hurdler Beau Michael is by no means out of this. Courage has never won a race and finished runner-up four times in succession over hurdles earlier this year while Days Ahead was a long way behind Beau Michael over timber in April though he'll be better suited by faster ground this time. Silver Shuffle has won once in 32 starts so the vote goes to TORETTO. A winning hurdler, he hasn't had too much experience and ran well enough behind Fosters Cross at Leopardstown last week to be given the nod.
