Verdict

Drive On Jim continues on his merry way but it's getting tougher and another 6lb rise for a narrow victory at Fairyhouse could just prove his undoing though he's a real heavy ground specialist. Rakamasi had just over a length to spare when beating WICKLOW LAD over two miles at Naas last month but the runner-up, who scored over the C&D in November, can take his revenge despite unseating his rider at Fairyhouse subsequently. Code Of The West looks held on that Naas run but Gentleman Jim, who started favourite after a very easy victory at Punchestown, jumped poorly and can do much better.
