Verdict

This is one for the market watchers though Ballyragget point-to-point winner Martello Tower will attract support under Patrick Mullins. Tony Martin's Danehill Dancer gelding Captain Hox should have enough pace as should Jim Bolger's four-year-old Sukiyaki, though testing ground could be a problem for the Flat-bred pair. Rock The World is bred on more traditional bumper lines and is definitely one to watch but a chance is taken with SIZING PLATINUM, a half-brother to a winning Flat stayer in Australia and the decent staying hurdler Mughas. Diamond Harry's half-brother Swift Harry is another to note in a very tricky event.
