Verdict

Hillman is only a couple of pounds higher than when third at Tramore on New Year's Day and has to have some sort of chance in a modest heat. Franchoek looks a light of former days, however, while Easy Vic was only fourth when well backed at Leopardstown at the start of the month, though trainer and jockey could hardly be in better form. SAIGHEADA BEAGA finished ahead of Easy Vic in that Leopardstown contest and is only a pound worse off. That looks the best piece of recent form and Terence O'Brien's charge gets a tentative vote, though Hidden Present has been thereabouts off similar marks this season and has won over this trip. Ardglen isn't badly treated but has been below par lately.
