Verdict

NA TRACHTALAI ABU has been solid and consistent in three starts recently winning a Punchestown handicap chase in May. Goes well for his claimer and can land the prize here with ground, class, C&D in his favour. Improving seven-year-old Major Destination may well have had this as a target for some time and comes here on the back of a spin over hurdles at Bellewstown earlier in the month. Course winner Newsworthy and Rock On Fruity who was tenth in this race 12-months ago can hit the frame.
  1. Na Trachtalai Abu
  2. Major Destination
  3. Newsworthy
