Verdict

Barry Geraghty's decision to partner STAND UP AND FIGHT is worth noting. He produced a useful effort here in a Grade 2 novice last season and remains thoroughly unexposed over this sort of trip in handicaps. That the jockey overlooks Punchestown winner Kilfenora is perhaps a sign that better things may be in store. Space Cadet has shown decent form over fences and commands a fair chunk of respect reverting to this discipline for the Elliott team while Shannak loves this place and comes back here in fine form. Handicap debutant Vision D'ete and Drumacoo complete the shortlist.
  1. Stand Up And Fight
  2. Shannak
  3. Vision D'ete
