Verdict
ITS ALL GUESSWORK caught the eye when placed over hurdles last time out and he looks capable of making a winning return to fences in this competitive amateur riders event. Livelovelaugh represents a leading stable and ran well when second at Leopardstown last time out and he can finish runner-up ahead of Any Second Now who should appreciate this step up in distance and can complete a clean sweep for Ireland.
  1. Its All Guesswork

  3. Any Second Now
