Verdict

Fast Exit's latest fourth behind Ridayef in a maiden hurdle at Downpatrick looks the best recent form on offer in this but he is still a maiden, and like a few of these, has to prove himself on heavy ground. No problems are anticipated for OCKEY DE NEULLIAC on that score and Ferdy Murphy's 10-year-old usually runs well fresh. With John Winston taking off 10lb, the C&D winner can come out on top as he gets 4lb from Kack Handed. Western Bound and Carmela Maria are next best on official ratings but neither has shown enough lately to warrant serious consideration.
