Forecast

Verdict
The Cheveley Park-owned LETHAL STEPS can land the opener, based on his couple of runs at Punchestown, third of 20, and Wexford, third of 14, over this trip previously. The Gordon Elliott-trained four-year-old can see off the challenge of the sole J P McManus representative, Envol Pierji who ran well on debut at Naas in January and will look to build on the run here. The solid and consistent La Tektor for the Tony Martin yard and the Noel Meade-trained Momus can mount strong arguments in a competitive contest.
