Verdict

PLOUGH BOY returned in style and as tough as ever when landing a Naas handicap earlier this month. The eight-year-old should be able to handle the 5lb rise to claim the prize ahead of the Tracey Collins-trained Idalia who is clearly better than her seasonal debut at the Curragh recently and Nigg Bay who will strip fitter for his spin at Tipperary last month. Snow Patch, Polly Douglas and Dapper Power are hard to dismiss on an extensive shortlist.
  1. Plough Boy
  2. Idalia
  3. Nigg Bay
