Verdict

The likes of The Holy One, Hearts And Trumps along with Justice Ears can be expected to be up with the pace in the early stages. The general speed on this ground could set the race up for a titanic battle for the honours between Pallasator and the Noel Meade-trained DIS DONC who can put a trio of seconds behind him here. The Willie Mullins-trained Antey can give the selection the most to think about dropping back to his preferred trip.
