Verdict

Captain Arceus beat a huge field at Navan in September and was well supported for a Grade 3 there earlier this month but was the first beaten. That wasn't his form and he should bounce back. Jupitor stepped up to this trip for the first time at Punchestown and battled to victory over Fergiethelegend. He'll need more here and it's RULE THE WORLD who looks the one to beat. Mouse Morris' charge won a point-to-point and a maiden hurdle before and excellent run in a Cork Grade 3 where he was just touched off by Our Vinnie. Carries Darling looked well suited to stepping up in trip when comfortably landing a 2m4f maiden at Clonmel and there's more to come from her but the remainder look to have plenty to do.
