Verdict

It was fast ground when Raydari scored at Roscommon last summer but he's 17lb higher today. Never A Secret has also won on a fast surface but is 10lb higher for this and Swift Marc has a more realistic chance upped only 6lb for his recent victory over fences at Clonmel. Roman Numeral had to dig deep when scoring at Tramore last time and will find this tougher but Luimneach Abu could go well back over timber after recent outings on the Flat. Bumper winner DRUNKEN COUNSEL finished a lot closer at Tramore on only his second start over hurdles and Gordon Elliott's charge gets the nod to come good with further progress on the cards.
