Verdict

BLACKSTAR ROCCO is firmly on the improve and was a long way clear of the remainder when runner-up in a handicap at Tipperary last time, so a 7-lb rise might not be enough to stop him getting back to winning ways. Hewick looks potentially thrown in if he can replicate his chasing form back in this sphere, so he's regarded as the main threat ahead of It Could Be You.

  1. BLACKSTAIR ROCCO (IRE)
  2. HEWICK (IRE)
  3. IT COULD BE YOU (IRE)
