Verdict

A chance is taken on LIGHTENING STRICKS. This veteran won at Killarney last May off a very similar weight to this, and he is at risk of being underestimated in the betting here due to his recent form figures, when in reality he hasn't run badly at all despite the impression they create. He shades preference ahead of Dressedinblack, who ran very well despite being denied a clear run last time, and Apache Gold, who unlike many of these has shown he is capable of winning races of this nature in the past.
  1. Lightening Stricks
