Verdict

LYREEN LEGEND has a Grade 2 penalty for his victory over the useful Folsom Blue and today's rival Bridgets Pet at Thurles but he looks good enough to complete a double at this level and holds Jenari on thier run at Navan in December. Texas Jack has been competing at a high level since completing a double in the autumn and quicker ground may help his cause. Turban is presumably the pick of the Willie Mullins trio but he was a big disappointment at Clonmel in February and his overall form falls short of what's required for this.
