Verdict

Hardy Eustace won this in 2003 and it's usually won by a jumper. Flying Light very nearly made a winning debut under Flat rules at Tipperary and has since been in fine form over timber, scoring at Galway last month. He's on the short-list but Dermot Weld won this a year ago and can repeat the process with DANCERS DILEMMA. He was in good form earlier this year, finishing third in a strong bumper at Leopardstown before winning one at Ballinrobe in May, and looks just the type for this. The top-class hurdler Go Native makes his long-awaited reappearance, his first start since being injured when favourite for last year's Champion Hurdle. He usually goes well fresh and should produce a good run before heading for the major events over timber. Jezki looked very useful when landing two bumpers at the beginning of the year and was by no means disgraced in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham while Benash looks best of those who have been racing on the level.
