JACK THE HAT is very consistent at this level, will stay the trip and likes the going so he earns the vote in a tight handicap. Grove Field has to be a threat after his maiden success at Clonmel while Green Thirty Two found the minimum trip too short at Galway after scoring comfortably at Ballinrobe when Limpopo Tom was behind. Celestial Prospect looks the main danger as he scored on the Flat at Wexford last month and also scored over timber there a year ago on his penultimate start over hurdles.
