Verdict

This looks a match between progressive chasers RATHLIN and Tribes And Banner. Both scored on the same card at Punchestown last month but the former looks to have the superior form and is just preferred to Charlie Swan's chaser as the latter has been upped 17lb for his easy success. Arnaud won nicely at Killarney last month but has yet to race on fast going and the remainder have plenty to find on today's terms with Flemross perhaps coming out best of them.
