Verdict

SEAN AIRGEAD was sent to Worcester to compete in a handicap chase last time and only just failed to overhaul Skint. He can revert to hurdling on a massive 27lb lower mark and has to be the choice. He Is Top Class reappeared after a long break to beat a big field at Roscommon. That was on fast going but he has form on a softer surface so has to be a big threat as his 4lb rise is more than offset by Shane Shortall's claim. The Yellow Bin, who was less than 2l behind him at Roscommon, has since run reasonably at Ballinrobe but appears unlikely to reverse the form. On My Own hasn't won for well over two years but has dropped in the weights accordingly and the market should be watched for clues.
