Verdict

Easter Hunt has looked as though this trip would suit since he stepped up to 2m4f and though he has the form to win this he was reluctant to start at Wexford last time so may not be one to trust implicitly. Successful point-to-pointer High In The Clouds will have found 2m2f too sharp at Downpatrick and this is more like his trip while Icy Reply definitely improved when stepped-up to 2m4f at Ballinrobe and her pedigree is all about stamina. POLISH PARTISAN had had his chances and will be facing fast ground for the first time but he's a genuine stayer who was conceding weight all round when runner-up in a Roscommon handicap last time so is taken to go one better.
