Verdict

Saoirse Dun completed a hat-trick of minor race victories before falling when favourite at Cork just over a week ago. Provided he's none the worse he looks certain to go well from the bottom of the handicap. Fever Pitch is up just 4lb for his Clonmel success and the lightly-raced Rich Revival overcame a long absence to score at Fairyhouse last month, though this is much tougher. Tarquinius arrives in top form and will love the testing conditions though he's been raised 10lb for his victory at Fairyhouse and is probably better over further. HARPSY CORD looks the one to be on as he was clear when falling at the last in a very tough race at Limerick last time and can gain compensation. Sumkindasuprstar and Armaramak are both held on that latter form.
