Verdict

RULE THE WORLD went close to landing a Grade 3 event at Cork last time when beaten a head by Our Vinnie. He had Busty Brown behind and the latter has since scored over C&D where he beat Bonisland over four lengths. Mouse Morris' charge should come out best on that evidence and gets the nod. Benevolent also carries the same colours as the two principals but has plenty to find with Dushybeag on collateral form. The latter beat The Paparrazi Kid, who runs in the previous race, last month while smart chaser Joncol makes his belated debut over the smaller obstacles.
