Verdict

Wide open contest with many chances, but the last time out winner WESTERNER POINT can land the spoils here for trainer Eoghan O'Grady on the back of a 2½L win at the Limerick Christmas festival off a 7lb lower mark. The Seamus Spillane-trained Goulane Chosen can emerge as the biggest danger following a career best run at Gowran Park earlier this month finishing second of 11, while Kylecrue and Vent De La Cote appear capable of hitting the frame.
