Verdict

World Citizen is the only C&D winner in the line-up and is just 2lb higher than when successful last September. Native Court arrives in good shape having won between the flags last month though he'll need to improve on what he's shown over hurdles. Mia's Vic has mixed hurdling with chasing after landing a maiden over timber at Sligo but doesn't look particularly well handicapped nor does Flemross, who is 11lb higher than his last success over hurdles and prefers faster ground. TREAT YOURSELF landed a touch on his reappearance at Gowran last month then returned there to defy an 11lb rise and complete the double. He's up another 7lb but Gareth Malone's claim will help and a hat-trick beckons. Popmurphy is consistent enough but has been beaten twice off lower marks recently.
