In depth

Verdict

A runner-up at Killarney on his racecourse debut last year, Casey Ryback has joined Tony Carroll subsequently and has his first start since September. But CRESSWELL PRINCE is taken to exploit a fitness advantage after making the frame over track and trip a fortnight ago. Peter Bowen's charge is also preferred to point-to-point winner Vinceson with the newcomer Going For Gold one to note for any support in the betting.
