Verdict

Ruby Walsh has completed a hat-trick in this, the last two for Willie Mullins, and the combination can prevail again with ROCKABOYA. A winning point-to-pointer and chaser, he's also scored three times over hurdles and was only just denied by Top Madam on his return from a summer break at Sligo last month. Shamiran has to be a major threat after his excellent second to Call Me Bubbles in a very tough handicap at Galway and a 4lb rise is almost wiped out by David Splaine's claim. The Crafty Butcher was in fine form in the spring, landing a maiden at Clonmel then running two excellent races in decent handicaps. There's more to come from him and he should go well as should the lightly-raced and improving Ballinrobe winner Hospital.
