Verdict

A race which Sizing Europe and Realt Dubh have won in recent years has attracted a small but very select field. Baily Green has been a revelation and a great credit to the skills of Mouse Morris. His three recent Grade 3 victories mean he's heavily penalised and meets potentially top-class rivals. Twinlight has done most things right and is progressing very nicely as his victory over Argocat at Galway suggests. He'll no doubt improve again but is up against it with Jessica Harrington's pair Jenari and OSCARS WELL favoured by the conditions. The former, a Grade 2 novice hurdle winner, made a tremendous debut over fences to beat Dylan Ross in what looked a very strong beginners event at Naas but his stablemate, a dual Grade 1 winner over timber, was very impressive on his chasing bow here last month and could go right to the top of the chasing ladder.
