Verdict

The forecast testing conditions will help ONEKNIGHTMOREIHOPE, who doesn't always find a great deal when push comes to shove but he arrives here on the back of a string of creditable efforts and is worth another try at this trip. It Could Be You and Fortune Street both performed well at the Punchestown Festival last month and they need considering, along with recent chase winner Burlesque Queen.
