Verdict

Mick Hourigan won this a year ago and DUSHYBEAG can repeat the process. He'd shown ability over fences without winning before a very impressive victory on fast ground at Clonmel last month and has plenty going for him here. Shanpallas hasn't been seen since finding heavy going against him at Cheltenham in January but his three victories to date have all been gained on good ground so today's conditions should be in his favour. Harpsy Cord has had 19 career starts but never raced on fast ground so he may find this too quick and the versatile Aughnacurraveel, a winner over 2m at Dundalk in March, may have more of a chance. Gimli's Rock looks best of the remainder.
