Verdict

Gift Of Dgab looked a very promising chaser early last season but hasn't run since falling in the Grade 1 Powers Gold Cup at Fairyhouse last April. Balnaslow looked ready to win again soon with a good run on fast ground here last month but ran poorly in soft going at Galway subsequently. Queiros Bleu won a chase at Tramore last time and can revert to hurdling on a lower mark while Coolmill ran his best race so far at Galway on only his second start in a handicap. Dingaling has gone up 4lb for finishing runner-up over this course and distance last month and SHAMIRAN by the same amount after a narrow defeat by Call Me Bubbles in a much better race than this at Galway - it's the latter who can go one better.
