Verdict

Off You Go and Low Sun are at the right end of the handicap and appear after much improved efforts last time. However, just one five-year-old out of forty-two runners has landed this. Dermot Weld's Tandem catches the eye off his low mark given his Flat exploits last summer and last year's winner Ice Cold Soul is weighted to be in the picture once again. Midnight Stroll and Ben Dundee both ran well enough last time to be considered, but the vote goes to BOHERBUOY. The son of Galileo may have been earmarked for this having shaped so promisingly on his handicap debut. He has been kept ticking over since with a run at Dundalk and he is very much one to keep in mind for the festival season whatever his fate here.
  1. Boherbuoy
  2. Midnight Stroll
  3. Ben Dundee
