Verdict

Mick Halford's team is flying and he has three entries with Zariyna likely to prove best as she was obviously not right when favourite at Roscommon following her Leopardstown success. Back Burner couldn't cope with a 7lb rise for his success at Leopardstown when tackling this C&D but was runner-up in this a year ago and looks sure to make a bold bid. Bible Black won a Listed contest here at this time a year ago and has been competing at a high level all year. This represents a drop in grade and he should go close while Iron Major is always capable of a big run at this level. HAIL had become frustrating before finally losing his maiden tag in an incident-packed event at Clonmel a month ago. He'll need to improve again but now he's got that elusive first victory under his belt he can follow up.
