Verdict

Dolphin Bay won this in 2007 under Nina Carberry from an 11lbs lower mark. John Kiely's charge has run some good races since but hasn't performed over hurdles since November 2008. Eagle's Pass looked like scoring at Punchestown when taking the lead at the last but eventually had to settle for third behind Jigalo and today's rival Alpine Eagle. He has been raised 4lbs and may take his revenge on the runner-up who has gone up 6lbs. Ireland's Call won twice on fast ground last summer and with conditions in his favour a long absence is not too much of a concern. James Lambe placed Skylancer brilliantly to land three novice events in the UK last autumn but the six-year-old faces stiffer competition here and the vote goes to SLIEVEARDAGH, who landed a very competitive novice hurdle at Tramore on New Year's Eve before finding 2m4f stretching his stamina at Leopardstown. Grey Soldier is another to note after unshipping his rider when still there with a chance at Punchestown.
