Verdict

Premier handicaps are usually tough and this is no exception. Steps To Freedom last ran here in February when he won easily. He's been running really well over jumps and on the level subsequently and won't go down without a battle. STRONGER THAN ME is one from two on this track and has won over this trip this year at Leopardstown and the Curragh. He couldn't quite get to the progressive Jayed Jidan over a mile last week at the latter track but, back over his best trip, is taken to land the spoils. The three-year-old Saxo Jack cantered in at Leopardstown and starts off in a handicap on what could be a lenient mark while the likes of Kingdom, Salhooda and Majenta have to be respected.
