Verdict

Focail Maith has leading claims. He finished ahead of Sir Boss when runner-up at Wolverhampton last time and beat Noble Silk over course and distance in December which gives him the edge over Solfilia. CAYUGA opened his account over a shorter trip here in August and went very close to making a winning return at this track last month. The Montjeu colt has plenty of scope over this extra distance and gets the vote. While You Wait is a winner in Ireland and also unexposed on the Flat. He's been hurdling along with Scottish Boogie while Harry Buckle is improving with a couple of wins over 1m2f here to his name.
