Verdict

Mister Philson ran well when second at Carlisle last month but this doesn't look any easier. In contrast, PINEAU DE RE finished runner-up in a tougher contest at Leopardstown on his latest start and a chance is taken Philip Fenton's charge has the requisite stamina over today's marathon trip. Seriatim made a winning debut over fences when beating Forestside in a beginners event at Down Royal recently but will find life more difficult in this, while Carrigeen Lechuga and Sole Witness are closely matched on collateral form after taking it in turns to beat Ballinahow Lady and the latter won herself in between those defeats. Fever Pitch makes most appeal of the remainder dropped in class today.
