Verdict

Just six runners but none can be dismissed though King Shabra takes a big step-up in grade after landing a Fairyhouse maiden. RULE THE WORLD's 4l second to The New One at Cheltenham is now looking a brilliant effort and there was something amiss when he was pulled up at Punchestown. He can bounce back and take this though Captain Arceus has fitness on his side after his two recent victories. Waaheb ran well against some smart performers last season and a recent run on the Flat will have put him spot on and Seskiname has the race conditions in his favour after he was disqualified after finishing in front of On His Own at Sligo in May.
