Verdict

Claragh Native can't get his head in front over fences and has now had 17 runs over the bigger obstacles. He ran out of steam over this track and trip last time after looking the likely winner and has no scope for progress. SIZING SOLUTION was making his chasing debut when just in front of Claragh Native here and with that under his belt looks the one to beat. Littletown Lass ran her best race for some time when runner-up to Katys Girl at Sligo so should be respected along with Imperial Joey, who won very easily over hurdles here last month.
