Verdict

Scots Gaelic had been going well over hurdles before a good effort over 2m1f at Clonmel and this may prove too short. Dermot Weld is probably lining Force Of Habit up for another crack at Galway and he may just need this but Placere has to go on the short-list after a promising run at Roscommon, her first since November. Adatara ran well behind Paddy The Celeb at Roscommon and the tough Prince Of Fashion can never be left out of calculations. Why But Why's only success came over 1m2f on this track and he hasn't exactly been consistent over hurdles but he should be in the mix though a chance is taken on GREY BUNTING, a winner on the Flat in the UK for Barry Hills and a good third over hurdles at Cork last month. The lightly-raced Buille Cliste is another to consider in an open contest.
