Verdict

Carlingford Lough had his biggest day in the Galway Plate in July then proved that he is a very smart staying prospect here in December and a strong gallop and testing ground will play to his strengths. DON COSSACK had beaten him narrowly but comfortably in the Grade 1 Bar One at Fairyhouse earlier and Gordon Elliott's charge is looking a very smart prospect so gets the nod. Ballycasey made a very impressive start over fences when beating the useful Mount Colah at Navan over a trip much too short. He's another exciting recruit to chasing making this a fascinating contest.
