Verdict

Joxer proved himself a potential star when runner-up to the high-class Monksland at Down Royal but the assessor has hit him hard and he makes his handicap debut with a big weight in this tough event. Beef To The Heels has generally been very consistent and even an 8lb rise for his latest victory at Punchestown is unlikely to prevent another big effort, especially with Jane Mangan's claim to aid his cause. KING OF QUEENS went up 10lb for his victory at Cork but has since run well on the Flat and, with just six runs over timber behind him, he looks progressive enough to defy the extra. Acriveen has had a new lease of life recently and will love the conditions though he's back on a high enough mark and Saint Gervais may prove more of a threat as he's been running well on the level.
