Verdict

WHATS THE PLOT might prove aptly named. Representing a yard that knows how to lay one out for a tilt at the ring he ran well without being knocked about last time and should be cherry ripe here. Ceide Fields is not out of it despite having top weight and will give supporters a decent run for their money, a comment likely to also apply to Lizzies Champ, for whom the booking of Ruby Walsh may be significant. Others to cast your eye over include Canny Tom and Northern Emperor.
