Verdict

SPRING HEELED was unlucky in-running when a close third in a Leopardstown handicap in March and didn't enjoy heavy ground at Punchestown the following month. He's had a nice break and can get off the mark. Gordon Elliott won this with Chicago Grey so Raajih is one to note though Shake The Bucket looks more of a threat after a fine run behind Sizing Symphony at Tipperary. Im Cool Too almost caused a shock when running Stonemaster close at Kilbeggan and a repeat would see him go close while Golden Wonder easily won over hurdles at Bellewstown and has a chaser's pedigree.
