Verdict

Jack The Bus, Kakagh and Wicklow Lad were all beaten in a slightly better class event over 3m here in November. The former had earlier scored over that trip here but the latter pair are both better suited by today's distance. Tullintain won a Punchestown handicap a year ago over today's trip but has continued to climb the weights without winning and is now 17lb higher. He had SILENT CREEK about 5l behind when runner-up to Seabass at Limerick last month but Christy Roche' charge was having his first start since March that day and can take his revenge on slightly better terms and gain his second victory over fences.
