Verdict

Popcorn made a very impressive chasing debut when beating Rathlin by just over five lengths at Thurles and looks a bright prospect. However, JIM WILL FIX IT also beat Rathlin by a similar margin when runner-up to the potentially top-class Bishopsfurze on the same track and with a 6lb pull should just about come out on top here. This is by no means a two-horse contest as Foildubh has come up against some classy opposition so far over fences and ran well in a Grade 2 at Punchestown last time. Headford Flyer should do best of the remainder.
