Verdict

Zardsky has only won once over fences and that was in a hunter chase. A Decent Excuse is 9lb higher than his last chase success but has since won over timber and isn't without a chance with his rider's claim a plus. Kevin Sexton's claim will also aid Ballysteen but his mount needs some rain while Rohan's Pride will find this much tougher than beating rivals in hunter chases and point-to-points. The veteran PRINCE RUDI went up a massive 12lb for his victory at Tipperary in May but still ran well at Roscommon last month and arrives here on a 10lb lower mark than over hurdles so is given the nod. On The Way Out hasn't won since 2012 and his best runs have been on ground with some give.
