Verdict

Given the sheer scarcity of recent winning form on offer among these, IT'S ALL A JOKE is the obvious starting point on the back of his Fairyhouse success 12 days ago. The 6-y-o was admittedly seen to maximum effect on that occasion, but a 4 lb rise looks manageable and reverting to the minimum trip shouldn't be an issue. Longstanding maiden Realtin Fantasy is second choice ahead of Blastofmagic.
