Verdict

FRENCH CANADIAN has been expensive to follow but has come up against one or two decent hunter chasers in his career under Rules to date. Though again a little disappointing when beaten in a point-to-point last time, he has his sights lowered here and can finally end his losing run. Fourth In Line had no chance at Cheltenham last time but should fare better in this grade while Realt Ag Leirmt appears to be improving and may be more reliable than front-runner Galbally King.
