Verdict

Griesenau couldn't handle the potentially useful Vesper Bell at Fairyhouse before falling at Down Royal but it will be a surprise if there's anything of that winner's calibre here. MALLER TREE had some decent form in bumpers and made a bright start over timber at Leopardstown when a close third to Aupcharlie. That will have done him the world of good and the 2lb he receives from Beef To The Heels may just be enough. The latter is progressing with each run and was only caught in the final strides by Station Lane at Down Royal. Present Potential did nothing wrong behind Allure Of Illusion at Punchestown and is another on the upgrade.
