Verdict

SOLSTICE KNIGHT won this a year ago under Barry Geraghty and looks to have been primed for a follow-up by Edward O'Grady as he's just 5lb higher and looked on the way back at Wexford last time. More Madness has to be a big danger as he was unlucky enough to get disqualified at Clonmel before finding My Murphy just too strong in a very tough handicap at Navan. Never Complain was making his chasing debut when scoring narrowly at Down Royal and will find this much tougher but Baresi has been hurdling with some success and can revert to fences off a lower mark so must be considered. Raajih has been waiting for better ground and should have the right conditions and he's well enough handicapped in another open contest.
