Verdict

Knocklong is the only one of these making a handicap debut and he's also stepping up in trip for the first time. There's no doubt he's progressing nicely and isn't overburdened though this is tougher than the maiden he won at Punchestown in May. Dancing Tornado has had a busy summer though that didn't appear to bother him here last week where he ran very well behind Acriveen but Stonemaster hasn't shown much for a while and it's a long time since he was winning off a mark of 149 at Cork early last year. Queiros Bleu has run his best races at Cheltenham including when placed in a very tough handicap last weekend. With Ruby Walsh on board he's a threat to all but this can go to LEROY PARKER. Noel Meade's charge started well over hurdles at this time a year ago and has been in such good form on the Flat recently that he looks very well in back over timber.
