Verdict

Glam Gerry makes his handicap debut after three runs in novice company and looks well treated on the best of his hurdles form. China Goes Green hasn't had too much racing and is just 5lb higher than when landing a Gowran handicap in April. A recent spin over timber will have put him straight and he should go well as should Noble Commander, who looks ready to win soon judged on a recent run at Fairyhouse. Torre Del Greco has produced some decent efforts in similar grade but this can go to the front-running LION NA BEARNAI, who would no doubt prefer a longer trip and more testing conditions but looks well enough treated to lead all the way in this grade under Andrew Thornton, who is one of the more experienced pilots in the event.
