Verdict

Happy Company has made the frame here in the past and is worth considering now following a ready success at Sligo last time out, though this is evidently tougher. Smart jumper Townshend is also likely to be on the premises following a solid run over 2m1f at Killarney last time. He represents the in-form Mullins yard and has Colin Keane up to help. Camlann was second in this race a year ago and returns from the same handicap mark, he will be popular, but DASMYHOSS has caught the eye recently and Robbie McNamara's charge should give this a decent shot.
  1. Dasmyhoss
