Verdict

Notwhatiam produced something of a shock on handicap debut to score over C&D last time out, he's respected in the follow-up attempt and will take a hand in proceedings should his mood be the same but a 10lb might be enough to soften his cough for now. Mine Now went very close at Punchestown last time and knows how to win round here but a 5lb rise for finishing second is plenty punishment. WISHMOOR has some potential to do well on his handicap hurdle debut, he's a former Punchestown bumper scorer and has shaped nicely enough in his previous jumping attempts. Seskinane needs to rediscover his best but would be a threat if doing so while last time out winner Concordin is also due respect stepping up in trip. Belclare Boy can do better than his handicap hurdle bow over C&D last month where he was pulled up. 1. Wishmoor 2. Concordin 3. Mine Now
