Verdict

Ballygill Gale won this a year ago and, as he's only 1lb higher and looked on the way back at Kilbeggan last time, he comes into the reckoning. Blaze Of Fire jumped really well and had little problem scoring at Killarney but he's 7lb higher which makes things more difficult and BALLYLIBERT, who beat him narrowly on the same track in June and has since run well behind Cool Warrior at Roscommon, looks the one to be on. The Lobstercatcher has never won in 18 starts over fences but produced a very good run at Kilbeggan last time and enters the equation.
