Verdict

Lascalahall has yet to win over fences but is on his highest mark after finishing runner-up at Fairyhouse. The front-running TARQUINIUS gets the nod as he appeared to find 3m5f much too far last time and this is a more suitable trip as he showed when scoring on heavy ground at Punchestown. Jolily was in good form at this time a year ago and is dropping to a winning mark and though Healys Bar is still a maiden over fences he's generally raced in much better company. Bangonform disappointed at Clonmel last time while Mister Farmer looks better suited by longer trips.
