Verdict

KALELLSHAN won twice at the meeting in 2010 including this event though from a 10lb lower mark. A good run on the Flat a couple of weeks ago will have put him straight and, as Mark Enright's claim is a major plus, he's taken to continue his fine form on this tough track. Teach Nua won at the meeting in 2009 and last year and he's another with a recent run on the level under his belt. Drive On Regardles didn't stay 3m at Roscommon after scoring over this trip at Tipperary while Greenbelt Star was having just his second start in a year on the Flat at Lepardstown earlier this month and will be ready for this. Maxim Gorky has a touch of quality though this is a tough introduction to handicaps as it is for Zerashan, a Listed class performer on the level who landed a Downpatrick maiden a couple of weeks ago. Flying Light would be suited by the ground drying out but Satu is useful at his best and has to be of interest with his young rider's claim a bonus.
