Verdict

The Jessica Harrington-trained NEARLY FAMOUS can get off the mark at the sixth time of asking improving on his fourth of 16 at Gowran Park last month and jockey Barry Geraghty is once again retained to take the ride here. Course winner Usa who has been slipping down the weights recently over hurdles has conditions to suit here battling for the place positions with C&D winner Persian Wind and the Paul Nolan improver Dia Del Sol.
  1. Nearly Famous
  2. Usa
  3. Persian Wind
