Verdict

There's a decent prize on offer in this and it's attracted some useful novices. Panther Claw has to go on the short-list with Barry Geraghty in the saddle. He won over 3m1f at Punchestown before finishing third at Gowran while Murchu was second in the Leinster National at Naas when racing from out of the handicap. Off his current mark today, Shark Hanlon's seven-year-old shouldn't be far away. Gallant Oscar and Viaduct Joey are both recent winners while Saoirse Dun is probably still on a decent mark and, like Mr Goodenough and Clashnabrook, started favourite last time. KNOCKGRAFFON KING has taken a while to find his feet over fences but his latest third here was a much-improved effort and he looks nicely treated at present. Noel Meade's runner likes it here and can open his account over the larger obstacles.
