Verdict

Festive Felon beat Friday's Cheltenham winner Don Poli over a slightly shorter trip here in December and bounced back to form when close-up in a tough Punchestown handicap last time. Thunder And Roses, who finished runner-up in that latter event, isn't certain to confirm the form on the revised terms. FLAMING DAWN won a Tramore bumper in December by a long way and was equally impressive on his hurdling bow there in January despite still looking inexperienced. He's taking on much better company here but could be up to the task. Rightdownthemiddle has been running well while Wicklow Gold won a Tramore maiden by a distance before finding handicap company too hot at Fairyhouse. Mr Fiftyone will appreciate this drop in grade after competing against top opposition since his impressive victories in the autumn.
