Verdict

AHORSECALLEDMOLLY was completing a hat-trick when landing this in 2011. He had a very long absence before returning in June and his three runs over hurdles will have put him spot-on to take the event for the second time. Count Salazar is running very well but has been raised another 3lb for his latest second place at Tramore and he's now 10lb higher than when scoring at Wexford. Fourth Class has been raised 6lb for his short-head victory over this track and trip last month where a last-fence error almost cost him the verdict. Raajih had been threatening to win a race for some time and finally got off the mark here last month. He makes his handicap debut over fences and doesn't look badly treated.
