Verdict

CAREFULLY SELECTED was a very easy winner in his sole point-to-point start before being picked up current connections and sent to the champion trainer. Willie and Patrick Mullins landed this contest 12 months ago and they look to hold outstanding claims once more. Fellow rules newcomers Master Of Tara and Madison To Monroe are also noted for their top connections. Of those that have run, Captain Cj and Lone Wolf appeal most.
