Verdict

Only one of these, Keep On Track, has ever won on this course and that was over a shorter trip. He's been going well enough in cross-country events to be given a shout here with his rider's claim a bonus. Knockanarrigan is a progressive chaser who overcame a last-fence error to score at Fairyhouse and he's capable of a big run as is Lord Alfie, who couldn't quite cope with a 4lb rise at Tramore after his earlier victory at Wexford. Red Or White wasn't far behind Knockanarrigan at Fairyhouse and has a chance at the revised weights but the one to be on here is TAILORS HILL. He showed nothing in 10 starts over fences but a spell out hunting appears to have worked the oracle as he gained a very impressive victory over hurdles at Cork last week and comes here on a much lower mark.
