Verdict

This is anything but a strong contest to begin proceedings. Jack Dillinger probably sets the standard on his Fairyhouse run last month, which was another step in the right direction and it may not require much more to take this prize. Geneva Barracks is another that has displayed some potential and his jumping was a bit better latest on third start over flights, he too should have a say. Colwinston put up an improved showing at Leopardstown recently, making him one for the shortlist but a speculative vote goes to ROSSMORE'S PRIDE. He weakened here over this trip on his stable debut but that was off a two-year layoff. He had shown some promise at Wetherby on his only jumps run in Britain and, while he is clearly not without risks, might be up to winning a contest like this.
  1. Rossmore's Pride
  2. Jack Dillinger
