Verdict

Close One just got the better of Lucky Pigeon at Roscommon last time and both can get involved in this with a similar effort. The betting suggested a better run from Phangio was expected at Downpatrick and he duly finished a close-up third while Perrie Hill finished second over a longer trip here last time and first-time blinkers are fitted today. CUT THE CORNER left his earlier form behind when popping up at 16/1 at Tramore. Now he's got his act together, Michael Hourigan's charge may well be capable of going in again so gets a tentative vote.
