Verdict

Many of these arrive here in cracking form but once again it's Dermot Weld who appears to hold all the aces. NATURAL HIGH has had just four races in his career and his only defeat came on this track in October. The son of Sadler's Wells could hardly have been more impressive on his reappearance at Killarney in May and there looks much more to come. Laughing Boy could provide the main threat as he was having his first start for Willie Mullins when gaining a surprise victory at Fairyhouse last month. The ex-Luca Cumani-trained gelding is 13lbs higher this time but looks certain to give a good account. Aladdins Cave continues to make progress but a 13lbs rise tempers enthusiasm though Mon Champion is only 3lbs higher than when scoring nicely over the trip at the Curragh and is expected to go well. Gimli's Rock generally performs with credit in these strong handicaps but is 15lbs higher than when victorious at the meeting a year ago.
