Verdict

SWEET MY LORD can hardly be described as a safe conveyance having falling in two of his four starts over timber but his overall form, particularly when runner-up to Askanna at Punchestown last month, looks good enough for this. Wilde Wit Pleasure has been a disappointment over hurdles and fences since his maiden success last November though he's generally taken on decent company while Ferris Bueller will need to step up a gear from his narrow success at Punchestown to trouble the selection. Special Token was well supported to make a winning return in a Cork handicap in October but ran a shocker and finished tailed off. He's better than that and will enjoy the testing conditions.
