Verdict

Faranadooney has only run twice over hurdles, beating three rivals at Listowel last summer, but is fit from a couple of recent runs on the Flat. Edmundo went to Thurles a couple of weeks ago with what looked a winning chance after an earlier victory at Navan but couldn't quite cope with Thepartysover and has gone up another 4lb. Peace In The West was beaten a long way over 2m7f at Fairyhouse after a much better run over this trip there earlier. COURT JESTER created a shock when beating Miranour over the minimum trip here and as there's no real doubt about him staying the extra half-mile he's given the nod to complete a double.
