Verdict

The veteran Captain Cee Bee won this last year and continued in good form subsequently. However, he has a penalty to contend with which may allow the classy chaser FOILDUBH to take his measure. He carried a big weight to victory in a handicap over hurdles at this meeting a year ago on his return from a break so the lack of a run won't be a problem. Midnight Game has been mixing it in strong company after completing a double in December and he'll be fit enough as will Fosters Cross, who won on the Flat at Leopardstown in July.
