Verdict

COURT KNEE was withdrawn from a race earlier this week because of testing ground and should find these conditions in her favour. She's yet to win a race but her last couple of runs have shown that her turn is imminent. High Talk has three career victories to his credit, all on this track. He mixes hurdling with chasing these days and though absent since November is expected to give a god account. Lake Return looks a big threat to all as he loves this track and was having his first start since 2011 when catching the eye at Wexford last month. Breeze With Ease ran very poorly at Sedgefield last week after a much better previous run at Tramore.
