Verdict

A cracking contest with several smart novices engaged. Giant's Quest has won handicaps on the Flat and over timber recently and has to be a threat to all while Que Pasa is progressing really well and followed her victory over 2m here with a very good run on the Flat at Bellwestown. The Black Russian has found his form with victories at Sligo and in a handicap at Kilbeggan so is unlikely to be found wanting but INDEVAN is such a scopey type that he's handed the vote. Willie Mullins has always thought plenty of the five-year-old who had a nice canter round on his return from a summer break at Sligo a month ago and looks the type to go on to better things.
