Verdict

Tommy Stack has a tremendous record in this so Roscommon winner Great Huzzar must be respected despite a poor final run at Tipperary. Richard Fahey will want to get his campaign up and running so Jeannie Galloway, the winner of five races and certain to be suited by the ground, has to be on the short-list under Paul Hanagan. Glor Na Mara lost his maiden tag at the 16th time of asking at Dundalk but that was over a mile while Six Of Hearts invariably needs his first run and has been beaten in this in previous years. Croisultan is a classy sprinter who can go well despite a big weight but Maarek has been raised 9lb for beating a huge field on heavy ground here in September. MOUNTAIN CORAL probably isn't quite up to this grade but fitness is a big advantage at this stage of the campaign and his recent form at Dundalk may just be good enough.
