Verdict

RASCO has done well over hurdles and though no match for Briar Hill at Wexford he won't be coming up against one of that quality here and should be good enough. Royal Captain fell on his only start between the flags but showed up well for a long way on his hurdling debut at Punchestown and looks the main threat. The remainder have shown very little with Regula possibly the best of them.
