Verdict

With question mark over many in the field, it may pay to side with SWINGBRIDGE who has been struggling off his current handicap mark over fences but looks better treated over the smaller obstacles. Another who has been chasing is Icantsay and while does not look particularly well treated, he has solid hurdle form in the past and is a winner over this distance. Although still a maiden, Eimear has been running some fair races in defeat and is certainly entitled to challenge for some place prize money.
