It’s tough to make a case for most of these and therefore SHESHOON SONNY has probably shown enough over hurdles to suggest he can win a race of this nature. The newcomer Banks Boy is well worth a check in the market on debut in a weak race.
The progressive UNEXPECTED DEPTH (NAP) should be tough to beat here having gone close in a valuable handicap at Leopardstown last time. Commander Of Fleet could be the main threat to the selection if he gets back to somewhere near his form of 2019 trying cheekpieces for the first time.
A competitive heat and plenty of these arrive in decent form. None more so than TRICKEY TRIX who has been as good as ever in recent defeats and gives the impression a third career win is on the horizon. Difficult Decision shaped like a return to form may be imminent last time and will appreciate this longer trip.
Already a winner at this level ZARKAREVA may well have more to offer, having had a nice break since coming up short at Grade 2 level at Cheltenham’s November meeting. Felix Desjy has been highly tried of late and looks the main danger dropped in class here, though the weight concession to the selection could prove a big ask. Recent Gowran Park winner Montagne D’Argent is clearly in fine shape and could go well despite looking to have it to do at the weights.
This is wide-open, but the tentative vote goes the way of KILKEASKINS FIRST who should appreciate a step back up in trip after a good effort when runner-up last week. Recent course and distance winner Castlegrange is an obvious threat with a less exposed profile over fences than most of these.
A likely match between two with identical official ratings. Myth Buster finished second in this race last year and has been running in competitive staying handicaps since. TOP MOON also reverts from handicap company, having gone down only narrowly last time over a shorter trip at Leopardstown. aAthough he has stamina to prove, he gets the vote.
Not too many with form, but Forever Frankie, Hasty Brook and Hunters Yarn have all shown enough to warrant claims here on their respective second starts. However, the Wille Mullins-trained newcomer HEMLOCK could well be good enough to beat them all. The Jamie Codd-ridden Baba Buck’s would be interesting if getting a run.
