Verdict
The Andrew Slattery-trained COOLDINE BOG can get back to winning ways over hurdles and land the third win of his career in this wide-open contest. The six-year-old will have many challengers in the shape of Megalomaniac who attempts to land a hat-trick of wins for trainer and jockey combination won this contest with Black Key 12 months ago, Downpatrick winner, Happy Lad and Castle North who will look to improve on a disappointing run at Ballinrobe last week for trainer-Willie Mullins.
  1. Cooldine Bog
  2. Happy Lad
  3. Castle North
