Verdict

Duers is the oldest of these veterans but has returned to regulation fences in good heart after scoring between the flags. Popcorn was a really bright prospect in 2011 but has been injured and shown nothing in three runs this year. Your Busy is better handicapped over hurdles and On The Way out disappointed when favourite at Limerick in December. FORITSA defied an 8lb rise for scoring here in November when gaining an easy victory at Thurles the following month. He's been given a break and looks the one to be on despite another 10lb extra. Rubert is only 2lb higher than his victory at Clonmel in November and Hidden Crack is on a lower mark than his last victory. Glenquest may do best of the remainder.
