Verdict

Sister Steve hasn't had much racing and got off the mark with a good display of jumping in a Kilbeggan maiden. This is much tougher but she should be in the shake-up. Indubitably is very inconsistent and ran a shocker at Tipperary last time but an earlier close second behind Mac's Conflict at Ballinrobe, where the consistent Cadeaux Fax was 6l behind, puts him in the frame for this. Tin Town Boy has been running moderately on the Flat since his success at Sligo in May and he's 7lb higher but Wither Hills is running well and could prove a threat despite a big weight. The latter finished a good fourth beind Beir Bua at Listowel last month but just in front of him that day was AZANA, who was returning from injury and having his first start for almost two years. He looks the one to beat here.
