Triolet (5/1), Littlestickarubarb (6/1), Fiesole (13/2), The Irritator (7/1), Canova (8/1), Black Kettle (10/1), Ardview Boy (12/1), Ciankyle (12/1), Mezajy (14/1), Right Turn Clive (14/1), Hello Humpfrey (16/1), Station Closed (16/1), Masterchippy (16/1), Bellas Rock (16/1), Intercounty Star (20/1), Rapid Fritz (20/1), Rock Solid (20/1), Goneoff (25/1), Royal Roslea (25/1), Aye Paddy Too (28/1), Shanroe Society (33/1), Crocosmia (33/1), Baron Von Chill (50/1)

Verdict
Not a race to get excited about and many of the runners have their questions to answer. Station Closed and Canova are noted for their leading trainer in a contest as weak as this, though both have yet to truly win the sort of trust needed. Littlestickarubarb rates an intriguing handicap debutant after his effort at Tramore last time but the tentative vote is held by CIANKYLE, who was shaping better last time at Wexford and seemed set to deliver a challenge when he came to grief. He may do so belatedly now.
