Verdict

Archie Mead has yet to impress over fences, though he's generally been aimed at much better contests than this. Coole Avenue has been placed once in eight starts over the bigger obstacles and has rarely shown his best form after a fall at Limerick a year ago, though he had Kashline well behind when runner-up there in December. Dushrembrandt was a progressive hurdler back in 2012 and his latest start over fences behind Cadspeed over 3m here offers some encouragement and Shamiran should be ready to do better after a couple of runs over trips too short. Manor Court made a promising return to action behind Bright New Dawn at Punchestown in December before a poor effort at Fairyhouse but in a tricky race it's STONEY who is given the nod as he looked likely to do much better when staying on nicely on his chasing debut at Clonmel a couple of weeks ago.
