Verdict

This looks tricky though LIVING NEXT DOOR is in such good heart that he'll take some beating. Ruby Walsh was on board when Tony Martin's charge scored over hurdles at Cork and again when he followed up over fences at Limerick. He's gone up markedly in the weights but looks the one to beat again though if Tukawhile is in the same kind of form as when winning a Tipperary maiden by 18l then he'll have a fight on his hands. Blossom Gate made good progress to land a Cork maiden before finding 2m2f too short behind the in-form Fiery Oscar at Limerick. Willie McCreey's horses have been going well so even an absence since 2009 may not prevent a big run from High Gales, who is seeking a four-timer, though quicker ground may be required. Prince Of Forwards battled to victory over fences last time and isn't as well handicapped over timber.
