Verdict

BALLY LONGFORD won over these obstacles in June and was still in contention when falling a couple of fences out back at this venue last time. The form of his earlier win was boosted when Indevan, only fifth behind the selection, won at Tipperary on his latest start and Henry De Bromhead's charge can return to winning ways with a clear round. Authinger won off a 7lb lower mark at Down Royal back in May and has made the frame at Limerick subsequently but Midnight Game has lost his way since recording a string of placed efforts over fences earlier in the summer.
