Verdict

Kinkeel's handicap mark is in freefall but the 12-year-old's recent efforts don't inspire much confidence. One More Dinar would have gone very close to losing his maiden tag at Bangor last time, however, had he not blundered at the last and he should be thereabouts despite a 4lb higher mark. Bertenbar was beginning to knock on the door when last seen in May and Phar Again was third over C&D last week so can't be ignored, but we'll take a chance on KILFINNAN CASTLE. Just behind subsequent winner Normandy Landings when fourth at Fontwell in October, he may have been revitalised by a short break and is back on a reasonable mark here.
