Verdict

A maximum entry but the chances are a lot of these are going to struggle to land a blow. Bleu Berry was perhaps just struggling to land a blow himself on his main rival when a hot favourite at Clonmel in March before he fell at the last. He'll need to have sharpened his jumping and is vulnerable. CHIRICO VALLIS has run with credit in two similar contests to this at Clonmel and Navan, he's given a chance to make it third time lucky in a field that lacks depth. Of those boasting experience, The Comediologist must have some chance after a decent start at Leopardstown. The newcomers are led by Knockmaole Boy and Jouxplane, whose trainer is in exceptionally good form. 1. Chirico Vallis 2. Bleu Berry 3. Jouxplane
