Verdict

Plenty of runners but few look to have realistic chances. MISTER NIBBLES certainly does as his second to Upazo at Fairyhouse was a cracking effort and, though this could prove on the short side, a likely strong gallop in soft ground can see him use his stamina to the best effect. He is given the nod though Is Love Alive, a winning point-to-pointer, hasn't been beaten far by decent rivals in his two starts over hurdles and looks a danger. Shemshall finished runner-up to the useful Apache Jack at Punchestown though he never looked like winning and will need to raise his game again.
