Verdict

BOG WARRIOR reverts to hurdles for the first time since early last year and the classy Grade 1 winning chaser enters the fray on a 31lb lower mark than over fences so is impossible to oppose. Irish Soul was in brilliant form at this time a year ago and will be better for his recent run at Clonmel while Slew Charm has been in excellent form and it's a travesty that he's won just once in 26 starts over timber, and that was back in 2006. Noel Meade's pair Benevolent and Cloudgazer will no doubt win again this campaign though face stiff tasks but the four-year-old Ozeta is much better than she's shown on her last two starts and is one to note in the betting.
