Verdict

In a wide-open contest, the Ted Walsh-trained ROXBORO ROAD can lead the way here following a handicap hurdle win last May and a solid winter campaign over the larger obstacles, culminating in a win at Leopardstown over 2m5½f last month. First-time blinkers are fitted to assist on return to hurdling and the Oscar gelding can see off the attentions of the Henry De Bromhead-trained, Naas winner, Embrun Mitja and potential improver from the Joseph O'Brien yard, Christopher Robin. Darver Spirit on debut for Gavin Cromwell and Avellino, the mount of Robbie Power require consideration.
