Verdict

This handicap has some depth to it, but it may be worth taking a chance with one towards the bottom of the weights in FUTURE PROOF. He kept on well when last seen in a Premier Handicap at Leopardstown in October and given his tendency to go well fresh, he looks very well-weighted and capable in this. Plenty stake place appeal, including the likes of Halimi and Roibeard, who set obvious standards with respectable efforts at this level. While the Cork Derby winner Rayounpour could be on a run of high progression, but the handicapper isn't willing to take many more chances with him.
