Verdict

This is hugely competitive but Savello's run in the Champion Chase on Wednesday points to the chances of Ned Buntline, who was second to the Gigginstown Stud gelding in the Grand Annual at Cheltenham when Tanks For That was unplaced and Competitive Edge and Passage Vendome both fell. Noel Meade's charge is weighted to reverse Naas running in January with Mallowney, though Golanbrook could trouble the pair on today's terms. Parsnip Pete won a Grade 3 at Aintree last month and can't be ignored but the unlucky Rupert Lamb and Mount Colah appear to have plenty of weight and Dick Dundee may find this an insufficient test of stamina. Toostrong will be better for his run at Limerick but was behind Dick Dundee at Wexford in the autumn. Better ground will suit SIZING MACHINE and, providing a fall at Fairyhouse hasn't dented confidence, Henry De Bromhead's six-year-old could go well in this at a working man's price.
