Verdict

Downpatrick winner WHATSINTHECORNER can gain his second chasing success here based on two sound efforts the last twice over fences and hurdles. Youth is on Rachael Blackmore's mount's side and any improvement would see him very hard to beat. Cadawill has some of the best form on offer although it has all come over around 3m so the trip is the doubt for him. Templemichael has form off higher marks that give him a real chance if back to his best after a recent return from a long absence.
