Verdict

STOLBERG ran a fine race here recently over timber and looked booked for victory only to be collared on the line by an in-form rival in Donegal Tuesday. He was disappointing on his only previous try at fences but can be forgiven that effort and rates a live danger here given his recent form over the smaller obstacles. He holds decent claims in what looks a wide open race. Captain Bizarro has twice run well at this venue in recent times and should do again while Alkaa Lion would have some hope if able to cut out the sort of mistakes that cost him on chase bow at the track in December. Returning from a layoff, Swantykay has the ability to go well fresh.
