Verdict

Mick Hourigan won the first two renewals of this but Craigs Dream has shown little to date. Clara More would have a favourite's chance on his close second to Dark Prospect at Downpatrick in September and he should be better for his reappearance 10 days ago. Pigeon Creek has failed to finish in two of his three starts over fences but was narrowly beaten in the other. He's an obvious threat if getting round but COOLNAGORNA GIGGS looks the safer option. He ran well in his first two starts over the bigger obstacles earlier in the year so it's a bit of a surprise that he's been hurdling recently.
