Verdict

Pumbaa's last two runs have resulted in victories on this track and he's still progressing so a 6lb rise in the weights shouldn't pose too many problems. Really Unique was behind him last time and is no better off at the weights but Concordin, at last, showed his true colours at Navan and an 8lb rise shouldn't prove too much of a burden. Allez Vic is running well enough though he's 12lb higher than his winning mark at Downpatrick in December. KOSTAR has won once in 20 starts but has dropped to a fair mark as a consequence and if repeating his run behind Inis Meain at Navan last month would be very difficult to beat so gets the nod.
