Verdict

Dermot Weld has won three of the last four renewals and Spirit Of Concorde will be a warm order here. But he was disappointing when odds-on at Dundalk and looks vulnerable. MODISTA made a very promising start at Ballinrobe last month when she finished strongly behind King Of The Romans. That will have done her the power of good and she can go one better. Celtic Monarch easily landed a Cartmel novice hurdle last month but is up against it here while Gerdago, though showing potential, has run over 1m5f on both starts and this is a big drop in trip though he hold Hejaz on their recent run at Tipperary.
