Verdict

Aussie Reigns appears to have been dealt a fair chance here on his handicap bow representing powerful connections and may be able to run this one close. Rathpatrick and Chain Gang clashed at Naas recently, with the former coming out best and he can do so once more for Barry Geraghty. Handicap debutant Mossback is interesting for his leading yard and has been choose by the Gigginstown number one to ride. Rachel Blackmore was in super form at Cork yesterday and she has some hopes of being in the mix here on LASOCSCAR. He wasn't beaten far last time at Limerick and with his rider's claim in entitled to go close now with the tongue strap returning.
