Verdict

Shanroe Society has won once in 26 starts over hurdles yet finds himself at the head of the weights after several decent efforts. Bye Bye O Bye is still a maiden and had no answer to Give Me A Break at Tipperary but he's run well at this trip and has to be respected. HERO DE VILLENEUVE has improved out of all recognition over fences and has shot up the weights but retains his lowly mark over hurdles and with Barry Geraghty booked a hat-trick looks on the cards. Maple Valley Gold has failed to build on her December victory at Downpatrick and deserves some leniency in the weights but Blaze Of Fire shouldn't be dismissed as he's well in on his chase form and a recent run will have put him straight.
