Verdict

Lucky Spring has shown very little over fences and is suffering with his high rating. He was pulled up last time in the race won by Reality Dose at Naas but the winner appeared to be feeling the effects of a later fall when running poorly at Wexford last time. Itsuptoyou was also a long way behind in that Naas event though did run a bit better at Leopardstown last time though HIDDEN PRESENT looks the one to be on. He hasn't won since 2011 but his consistency means his handicap mark remains high though his overall form should prove enough to gain his fourth success over fences.
