In depth

Verdict

Winning hunter Make It Better hasn't shown much over hurdles to date but there's still time and he'll be better for last month's run at Thurles where he ran well for a long way. Big Jemmy won over the C&D a year ago and has been alternating between hurdles and fences. He's 9lb higher this time and could have a few pounds too many so PRESWELL LAD gets the nod. He's another who divides his time between hurdling and chasing and ran very well behind Cool Oscar at Thurles where Kizzy O returned with a good run after a long break. Spiker The Biker looks reasonably treated and must be given a chance from his lowly spot in the handicap.
