Verdict

MONALEE blotted his copybook when falling in a 3m Grade 1 contest here over Christmas and he is taken to get back on track in this competitive 2m5f contest. Henry De Bromhead's charge showed useful form over hurdles last season and with the ground to suit he can get the better of Sutton Place who represents a leading yard and made the perfect start to his chasing career when winning last month. Invitation Only is already a Graded chase winner and he can claim third ahead of experienced stablemate Rathvinden.
