Verdict

UNION GAP has knocked on the door several times in this sphere back in the winter and comes here race-fit after a couple of spins on the level. He could be hard to hold and can get on the board for Noel Meade. Cats For Cash put up a much-improved effort here 16 days ago in second spot (clear of the rest) and goes on the shortlist alongside Bachelor, who has already shaped with purpose in good company over timber. Miss Louise was let down by the jumping here last time but plugged on and will do better once the technique is improved.
