Verdict

NOBLE ENDEAVOR was successful in a valuable handicap at Leopardstown last time out. The selection fell in the National Hunt Chase here in 2016 but has run well in competitive handicaps the last twice and represents a top yard here. Un Temps Pour Tout and Holywell filled the first two placings in last years renewal of this contest and while the last named hasn't set the world alight this season he generally performers better in the Spring and can run well again here (also took this in 2014) while others to note include the 2015 winner The Druid's Nephew and the unexposed novice Singlefarmpayment who was successful here earlier this season.
  1. Noble Endeavor
  2. Holywell
  3. Singlefarmpayment
