Verdict

No winners in five years then two in a couple of weeks for young jockey Adam O'Neill, who teams up again with John Berry on board CIVENA. His mount produced a career-best performance to score at Punchestown last week and with the assessor likely to hit her hard it's no surprise to see her running here with a 4lb penalty and the move can pay off. Ballygill Gale scored over fences last month before reverting to hurdles and completing a double at Roscommon last week. He's been raised 7lb but is still well handicapped over timber and looks a big threat. Mister Farmer is better known as a chaser but his stamina can carry him into the frame while Come To The Party also stays marathon trips, though he may just need this after an absence. Away We Go has his first start for Willie Mullins and given his record of improving horses expect a better show than the form figures would suggest.
