Verdict

DOCTOR WOODFIELD, who finished runner-up in the first running of this veteran's race a year ago, has won here subsequently and gets the vote to go one better after another good run on the track last month. Give Us A Hand has to be a threat after his narrow defeat by Murchu at Fairyhouse but he hardly ever wins and probably prefers further, a remark that also applies to Droim Toll. Sang Bleu looks a bigger threat as his close second to Lion Na Bearnai at Punchestown last May is the best form on view and he will be better for a recent run between the flags. Ponmeoath may prove best of the remainder.
