Verdict

Catch Me is struggling to find his best but has slipped down the weights as a consequence and could bounce back at any time. Pires has been in better form and finished third on the Flat at the Curragh last Sunday. It's been a while since the winning chaser scored over timber, however, and it could pay to stick with ANOTHER REBEL. He has a 9lb rise to contend with having won as he liked at Clonmel last time but Mike Winters' charge is fancied to shrug that off and go in again. Kilcrea and Ted Dolly have claims if fully recovered from whatever ailed them last time but Aughnacurraveel will find today's ground fast enough. Knockcroghery has won twice over 1m6f on the Flat recently, including at Bellewstown on Friday night, and would be a danger to all if turned out again quickly.
