Verdict

Tom Foley stated that Followmeuptocarlow was off on his holidays after he won a beginners' chase in style at Tipperary on Thursday so if he does turn up here then he has to be greatly respected. MALLOWNEY had just over two lengths to spare over Art Of Logistics in a handicap at the Festival here. He's 3lb worse off but looked to have a bit in hand and should confirm the form and take this. Protaras has won twice over fences but is mainly inconsistent, though a recent run on the Flat should have put him straight and he can never be ruled out. Absolutlyfantastic hasn't had much experience over fences but has shown ability and should be winning again soon off this mark.
