Verdict

Noel Meade has won this twice in recent years so chasing newcomer DYLAN ROSS can come up trumps against established jumpers. A close second to Cash And Go in the Grade 1 Future Champions Novice Hurdle at Leopardstown's Christmas fixture, his pedigree is all about jumping fences and he's taken to get off the mark at the first time of asking. Baily Green goes from strength to strength and it's only the concession of 7lb that could swing things in favour of the selection. He reverted to hurdling to land a Killarney handicap last time but his accurate jumping had taken him to victory in his three previous races over fences. Imperial Shabra makes a quick reappearance after a poor run at Navan on Saturday and is better judged on his earlier victory over Laganbank. House Rules has improved with each run over the bigger obstacles and had no difficulty beating Days Ahead at Killarney though this looks tougher.
