Verdict

RUBI LIGHT has won this for the past two years when run at Gowran but has never run over fences on this track. He had a lung infection when last of three in the John Durkan but bounced back with a cracking effort behind the brilliant Sizing Europe in the Dial-A-Bet at Leopardstown and a return to this longer trip should see him complete a three-timer in the event. Foildubh was also behind Sizing Europe last time and is another suited by further. He's closely matched with Hidden Cyclone on their run at Naas in October though the overall form of both doesn't quite match that of the selection. Chicago Grey finished runner-up a year ago but was beaten a long way and his most recent form leaves plenty to be desired.
