Verdict

INIS MEAIN, a Listed race winner in May and twice runner-up at that level on testing ground on the Flat later in the year, has gone up 2lb for finishing third behind Jetson at Punchestown but still looks capable of winning this. Annie Oakley is another who relishes heavy going as she showed when beating Thunder And Roses at Punchestown so she has to be a threat as though she was a long way behind Miss Xian at Fairyhouse in December she easily reversed the form last time. Hold Em Cowboy beat a huge field over 2m4f on this track the last time he ran over hurdles and has shown himself in excellent form over fences so is another for the shortlist. Malt Gem was due to run at Gowran yesterday.
