Verdict

Tabhachtach was very unlucky when coming to grief at the last at Navan with the race in safe-keeping. To compound the misery he's been raised 6lb though his rider's claim takes care of the extra. WRONG TURN, who had fallen on his two previous starts after scoring at Killarney, had today's rival Mackeys Forge a neck behind over the course and distance last month but would have won more comfortably but for interference. He's gone up 8lb and should confirm the form and take this. Hold Em Cowboy looks a big threat despite a 10lb rise for scoring at Fairyhouse as he's in very good shape at present. Sterling Stuff hasn't had much racing and has failed to complete in two of his last three but he won the other in great style and is a danger to all if getting round.
