Verdict

COSMO'S MOON can land the opener following his second of 18 beaten over 3L in a Thurles maiden hurdle earlier this month on stable debut for trainer Noel Meade. The six-year-old gelding by Morozov can see off the challenge of the Willie Mullins-trained Roll Again who can improve on his fourth of 14 at Naas in January. Ringo Kid caught the eye for a long way at Thurles before fading late on earlier this month and could improve to hit the frame.
