Verdict

The top two in the weights look up against it here and Pyracantha may require the run after a break. HEALTH IS WEALTH finally delivered a fine effort after a series of disappointments when third to City Press and Rockiteer here over 2m7f when equipped with a tongue tie for the the first time. He sports blinkers for the first time and a repeat of that effort would rate him the one to be with here. To Live is no worldbeater but continues to perform creditably and could have more to offer as a six-year-old, whilst Queen Of Mantua has claims if forgiven her latest below par effort. Good old Pairc Na Gcapall should give this a decent shot off the bottom rung.
