Verdict

The former Aidan O'Brien-trained Acapulco won a shade cosily at Cork last month and, despite a 6lb higher mark, may be capable of reversing earlier Naas running with Miss Xian. Call Rog had no problem with the step up to 3m here last month and is another leading contender, but FOREVER GOLD might have a chance of reversing form with the latter on better terms. Edward Cawley's winning pointer is heading in the right direction and his low weight might be an advantage if the going gets any softer. Others to consider include Art Lord and Operating, though the latter needs to bounce back from a poor run in a Grade 2 here last month. Balnagon Boy is trying 3m for the first time while Letherbelucky may be in the handicapper's grip now but Followmeuptocarlow beat Los Amigos over track and trip nine days ago and could be thereabouts again.
