In depth

Verdict

Dont Tell Pa is upped another 8lb after landing a double when successful at Limerick last time. He'll be thereabouts again but SHESONLYAHORSE is preferred. The Galway winner just failed to hang on to the lead in better company at Fairyhouse on Wednesday and is taken to go one better here. Senior Again has won a couple of chases since the last time he raced over timber and could figure competing off a much lower mark while Noble Pageant has been placed in similar company of late and may well make the frame again. Do The Bookies could prove best of the remainder.
