Verdict

Ruby Walsh's booking for Muzak catches the eye and his mount, who won over 2m1f at Ballinrobe in August, is probably better at around this trip after fading over 2m6f there last time. Tony Martin runs both Salute Him, who is still a maiden over fences, and Sensational Sema, who is well treated on his hurdling form though an absence since February won't help. CAIRDIN hasn't had much racing and makes his handicap debut over fences. He's made a few novicey mistakes in his three starts to date but he's a scopey individual who looks destined for better things so can carry his big weight to victory. In The Haven was only a couple of lengths behind Muzak at Ballinrobe but is still a maiden after a dozen starts over fences.
