Verdict

This has been won by some smart chasers and REBEL FITZ should join the list. He's been very impressive since being beaten in his opening run over fences and looks one of the best novices of the season. Owega Star will be receiving 6lb from him and looks the main threat as he's gradually improved his jumping and stayed on very strongly at Listowel last time. Toostrong was a big disappointment at Roscommon last week so Run With The Wind may do better as he looked progressive when beating Benash at Listowel.
