Verdict

With a good number of the field struggling for form, trainer Gordon Elliott may have found an ideal opening for CREADAN GRAE to get back to winning ways. The seven-year-old won on second chase start at Perth in September and can get the better of the rejuvenated, Kings War, winner at Wexford on last start and the John McConnell-trained course winner, Pat's Pearl. It would not come as a surprise should, School Lane return to form.
  1. Creadan Grae
  2. King's War
  3. Pat's Pearl
