In depth

Verdict

A low grade handicap in which Derek Fox's claim can help HIGH TALK to another success. He generally goes well around here and scored from 7lb lower last July - his young rider's claim wipes out the extra burden. Rudigreen has dropped to a mark from which he can be competitive as he was when runner-up at Thurles in April while Yachvili is on his lowest mark since 2008 and it would be no shock tpo see him bounce back to form. Jack The Ref is still a maiden after 13 starts but produced his best run over today's C&D on good ground in September so must be considered provided the going doesn't turn heavy.
