Verdict

Golden Firth landed a maiden hurdle at Downpatrick in March and has been given a break following a poor run there a month later and also joined Tont Martin. Portrait King landed the Eider Chase at Newcastle in February last year and, though not seen since well beaten in the Scottish National a couple of months later, he reverts to hurdling on a much lower mark. Tabhachtach had been chasing before a fine effort behind Celestial Prospect over hurdles at Navan where he may have won if his jumping had been better but SHAKE THE BUCKET should make his mark over fences this season and can take this as last week's run at Dundalk should have put him spot-on. Lady Of Glencoe won a maiden hurdle on fast ground here in May and looks nicely treated but World Citizen is up 6lb for his victory at Ballinrobe and could just find the quicker ground against him. The Lady Granuaile alternates between hurdles and fences and is on the same mark as when a close second over the bigger obstacles last time.
