Verdict

EINSTEINS FOLLY went up 8lb for his final victory of the last campaign and came up against a progressive type when runner-up to Francis Of Assisi on his return. He should do well again this year and can go one better though Qasser, who didn't run as a juvenile and was having just his fourth start when scoring at Cork in October, looks a big threat. Star Links has won eight times and took advantage of a lenient mark and very testing ground to score at Leopardstown. Seanie ended last season with a superb effort in a very tough handicap at Leopardstown and should make a bold bid to defy his big weight.
