Verdict

The 12-year-old veteran, Shake The Bucket was a recent winner over the larger obstacles in May and holds strong claims on return to hurdles. The Niall Madden-trained gelding may face stiff opposition from distance winner, MUYAM SPIRIT with trainer Denis Hogan boasting a 40% win and place strike rate from five handicap hurdle runners at this meeting in the last four years. The J P McManus-trained, Thecraicisninety, Celebrity Status, winner last time out at Clonmel and Persian Wind, runner up in this contest 12 months ago can all give a good account of themselves.
