Verdict

KILFENORA and That's A Wrap are at the right end of the weights and appear to be peaking at the right time. Both have the credentials of recent winners in that they are improving young chasers. KILFENORA achieved more last time and, like That's A Wrap, is on a good mark in comparison to his hurdling exploits. Patrick's Park and Townshend are feared for the Mullins team, whilst Conrad Hastings looks the pick of the de Bromhead runners. Bel Ami De Sivola is another progressive type with the right age profile, whilst Dysios is a course specialist who may have been brought along with this race in mind. Blast Of Koeman has been touted for this event and so warrants respect, despite being considered better going right-handed.
  1. Kilfenora
  2. That's A Wrap
  3. Dysios
