Verdict

Punta Marroqui makes a quick reappearance after a poor run when favourite at Leopardstown on Thursday where the very fast ground wasn't suitable. But PANAMA HAT has really hit his stride and though racing from a 10lb higher mark for his victory at Leopardstown it didn't prevent an even easier success at Fairyhouse last week. He's been handed the same rise again but races only with a 5lb penalty here so has to be the selection. Alafzara was well beaten despite finishing runner-up at Wexford but Solar Force is respected despite moderate form figures as he's making his handicap debut over a much more suitable trip.
