Verdict

Domination won twice over hurdles on quick ground in August but it was heavy when he made a winning start over fences here a fortnight ago where he was left clear at the last. He probably would have won anyway and there's more to come. Folsom Blue jumps and stays well as he showed when landing a 3m4f Leopardstown handicap in February while Letter Of Credit is very experienced over fences which could count in the expected tough conditions. ROGUE ANGEL can take this as he had Touch The Eden 11l behind when making all at Punchestown on New Year's Eve and wasn't beaten far in the National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham. The latter did better over a shorter trip at Navan last time but there doesn't appear any reason for a form reversal.
