In depth

Verdict

Howwoulduno has won over hurdles at Hexham and Perth over the past few weeks so at least will be fit enough but he's up against some potentially useful performers here. RATTAN has had a couple of runs over fences without success but there should be much more to come from Willie Mullins' useful hurdler who ran really well in a strong event at Galway a couple of weeks ago. He is handed the verdict over Mackeys Forge, another decent hurdler, who gave Datokepe a fright when last seen over fences at Kilbeggan in May. Rodriguez may prove best of the remainder after a good run behind Minella For Value at Listowel.
