Verdict

Recent winner INSTANT RETURN may be the one to side with now he has a win under his belt. The gelding showed plenty of guts to win last time at Punchestown (albeit aided by a fall of likely contender and two flights being missed out) and if he can show just a little more improvement then he holds every chance. Perennial runner-up Pasley has probably not been given too many favours by the handicapper but he is wonderfully consistent and will take advantage if any of the more progressive types fail to flourish. Nobel Joshua does not jump off the page as the likely winner but he has shown enough ability to suggest he is capable of winning a handicap off his current mark.
  1. Instant Return
