Verdict

Insanely competitive start to proceedings. Feeling The Love returns from a break and is capable of improving again while the likes of Jon Ess and Elm Grove are possibles. Kilkeaskins First surely won't get things as easy as at Tramore while Shanroe Tic Tec and Put The Kettle On make the shortlist. The two to settle on are Itsalonglongroad, unseen since a maiden win last summer, and SIL VER KLASS for Tony Martin. He ran well on handicap debut and can improve from near the foot of the weights. Watch out for easy Ballinrobe winner Bercasa.
  1. Sil Ver Klass
  2. Itsalonglongroad
  3. Feeling The Love
