Verdict

Many of these arrive in fine shape including Curragh Golan though he's interspersed three cracking efforts with two shockers where he's been pulled up. He's very closely matched with Lost Book, who wasn't far behind him last time and is much better off at the weights. Portrade has been in very good form but has nothing in hand over QUARTON, whom he beat over 2m1f here last month but who has since proved himself over this trip. Gordon Elliott's charge scored over fences last time but can revert to timber on a fair mark and can go in again. Days Ahead is extremely versatile and still well treated compared to his chasing mark. He ran very well on the Flat at Tramore a couple of weeks ago and is greatly respected. Give Me A Break has been raised 11lb for her very easy victory at Sligo but she's still on the upgrade and will give a good account.
