Verdict

This looks a tight race but Irish Raider UNDER REVIEW seems to be in good heart at the moment so is given the call. A win on the beach at Laytown was followed with a narrow defeat in a big field at Cork and off a similar mark he should go close with the surface likely to suit. Kipchak is back to a workable rating but is yet to win over this far while Prince James has a chance in this field with scope for improvement. Methaaly is on a winning mark but has failed to take advantage of similar opportunities recently so in an open contest Under Review looks in the best heart.
