Verdict

Fixed Fee was having his first start for almost two years when only beating one home at Leopardstown in February and may need more time. Hearthstead Dream is versatile but hasn't raced since September and Gordon Elliott looks to have stronger claims with Martin Scruff, who only went down by a short-head over a longer trip at Navan last month. South O'The Border's last win was at this meeting two years ago while Washington Irving is also worth opposing on recent form, but Attaglance is proving consistent and SHAMMICK BOY was clearly facing a stiff task when trying to give 6lb to Topolski at Newton Abbot last month. The winner landed a Grade 2 at Aintree next time to boost the form and Victor Dartnall's charge can return to winning ways here.
