Verdict

Hasn't yet lived up to his £200,000 purchase price but the Kayf Tara gelding MONBEG CHIT CHAT finally got off the mark over the larger obstacles at the sixth time of asking when justifying favouritism in a Punchestown handicap last month and another bold show can be expected here. Miss Sassie and Fenlon's Hill can go well while Eiri Na Casca won this contest 12-months ago and can hit the frame once again.
  1. Monbeg Chit Chat
  2. Miss Sassie
  3. Eiri Na Casca
