Forecasts

Sil Ver Klass (11/4), Commandant (3/1), Serious Ego (8/1), Prosecution (10/1), Effernock Lad (10/1), Buttons And Bows (14/1), De Mazzaro (14/1), Tournois (16/1), Kelter's Dawn (16/1), Earl Of Bunnacurry (16/1), Livingstones Quest (16/1), Roachdale House (20/1), Streak (25/1), Noble Intention (33/1), Trenchtown Rock (33/1), Peace Party (33/1), Cloughmoylepatriot (66/1)

Verdict

Trainer Tony Martin runs three here and his potentially improving five-year-old SIL VER KLASS can win his second hurdle following a win on soft to heavy ground in April last year off a 2lb lower mark. Commandment from the Joseph O'Brien yard could emerge as a big danger, despite ground concerns, along with Serious Ego for the Gordon Elliott/Davy Russell combination. Last time out winner on handicap debut, Livingstones Quest is worthy of consideration, while Efferknock Lad could grab a place running past beaten horses.
