Verdict

A big field for this contest but, in truth, few have obvious claims for success and the market is likely to be dominated by KOLUMBUS and Gunnery Sergeant. The former was runner-up behind stablemate Bacardys at Leopardstown over Christmas, with the third horse home going on to score readily at Naas last Sunday. That form looks rock solid thus and he can score here for his leading jockey/trainer combination. Gunnery Sergeant also found just one too strong at Limerick but that was a step forward on his debut effort and he should go well for an in-form yard here. They look the outstanding candidates in this, with a chance taken that Cresus De Grissay could grab a place if reproducing his debut Wexford effort here. 1. Kolumbus 2. Gunnery Sergeant 3. Cresus De Grissay
