Verdict

The experience of Cask Mate and Bracka Lily could see the pair setting the early pace here with Crown Of Thorns chasing behind. Gigginstown House Stud debutantes Choungaya and Aforementioned can hit the frame in this company who along with Moonshine Bay and Cask Mate on the scene can challenge the selection GRAN GESTE who landed a competitive Thurles bumper in October and progress is clearly expected here with Barry Geraghty up.
