Verdict

Half-a-dozen of these arrive in winning form and it's one of them, NAMARAMA, who is handed the vote. He had been a frustrating type previous to his facile victory at Downpatrick, for which he has a 10lb rise to contend with, but now he's got his head in front can score again. Neighbourly is also up 10lb for a comfortable victory at Kilbeggan and his ability to last out the trip has to be taken on trust but the distance is no problem for Cerveza Dinero, who won over the trip at Limerick. Kingsmoss won over fences at Downpatrick and is 10lb lower over hurdles now while High Way Hunter scored on his debut under Rules at Sligo and will handle the testing ground better than most.
