Verdict

This is always one of the season's toughest handicaps to unravel but there's no denying the obvious chance of INIS MEAIN this time. From a yard that place their horses brilliantly, he was a revelation on the Flat last summer, winning four times and leaping a colossal 52lb in the ratings as a consequence. He reverts to hurdling on a very lenient mark and has to be the selection. Citizenship won this a year ago from Leah Claire and it's the runner-up who looks to have the best chance of the pair this time as she's been in better form. King Of Queens is doing everything right though a 10lb rise for his latest success looks harsh while the novice Ted Veale may lack the experience for such a gruelling event. Discoteca could provide each-way punters with some joy as he ran very well here last month on only his second start since the Galway Festival in July.
