In depth

Verdict

DE CHISSLER won a point-to-point last month and showed just how much he's benefited from a spell between the flags when comfortably landing a Limerick handicap hurdle last week. He'll get more than the 6lb penalty he carries here when the weights are reassessed and this looks a good opportunity. Gothen Niece can't get her head in front though she failed narrowly to overhaul Balrath Hope at Gowran, Jumping errors cost her dearly that day and she can't afford mistakes here. Shanroe Society has only won once in 19 starts over hurdles and is 10lb higher but Getoutwhenyoucan showed that his turn was near when headed in the closing stages by Tiday Zag at Tramore. He looks the main threat as a 3lb rise shouldn't be a problem.
