Verdict

The ground is an imponderable for some of these and for that reason it seems safest to select the in-form runner THE LAST INDIAN. His form has gone to new levels since returning to the Flat and both wins have come on yielding ground. His latest success at Navan left the impression there would be more to come and despite dropping back in distance, the conditions should ensure this mile takes plenty getting and he can record the hat-trick. The other likely contenders must prove they can handle conditions. Hard Times will hold a claim if getting away smartly while Cosmic Symbol is in good heart after victory at Killarney, despite now running from a career-high mark. Intense Stylist is turned out quickly having won here this week already while Indian Tomahawk improved last time to be second at Bellewstown over this trip.
