Verdict

Count Salazar is useful in this sort of grade and reverts from chasing where he's on a 26lb higher mark. He probably needs further while the handicapper looks to have hold of Luke's Benefit. Sir Harry Cash has had 26 starts without winning but has come close on occasions including when runner-up to Getoutwhenyoucan at Naas in January. The winner has completed a hat-trick so the form looks useful. WESTERNERS SON beat Getoutwhenyoucan at Punchestown on New Year's Eve then gave him a race at Thurles a month later. He needs to bounce back from a fall last month but is taken to do so with his rider's claim a bonus. The Conker Club returned to form with a fine effort behind the well handicapped Snowell at Thurles and a similar effort would put her in the picture. Rafi De Triana is running well but now 13lb higher than his winning mark at Cork a year ago.
