In depth

Verdict

This was run at Punchestown last year and won by LASTOFTHELEADERS from just 4lb lower. He looks to have been laid out for another crack by Arthur Moore and last month's run over hurdles will have put him spot-on. Tom George sends Majala from the UK and the Grade 2 winning novice should prove a threat as he's been competing at a much higher level. Savello was conceding masses of weight all round when a close third to King Vuvuzela at Leopardstown while the lightly-raced and progressive Turban will have come on for his recent run over timber at Cork, his first start since last May. Beneficial Spirit ran two fine races on this track around this time a year ago though is better handicapped over hurdles as is Competitive Edge, though the latter was in very good form over fences at this time last year.
