Verdict

This was won by Flemenstar last year and it would be no shock if TWINLIGHT proved as effective as Peter Casey's star in time. Although beaten by Buckers Bridge in a Grade 2 at Navan last month, he gave the winner 6lb and a real fright and is probably still progressing. Dedigout started favourite that day, despite a moderate earlier effort at Leopardstown, but again disappointed. There's nothing to suggest he can reverse the form on the same terms but You Must Know Me would be a threat if able to recapture the form shown when narrowly beaten by Boston Bob on his chasing debut at Navan. Whodoyouthink is better over hurdles and would prefer quicker ground.
