Verdict

Starkie was only third to Page Turner at Limerick in December but Henry De Bromhead's charge is 11lb better off today and the top weight was well beaten at Cork a week later. Rubert was tailed off at Leopardstown on St Stephen's Day and probably needs a bit further nowadays but The Shepherd King is back over a more suitable trip and THE WAY WE WERE was placed off today's mark last time. The latter enjoys a massive turnaround in the weights than when fourth to Luke's Benefit at Punchestown earlier and can come out on top today.
