Verdict

First-time handicapper, WESTERN SEA can continue his rich run of form in this contest. The gelding continued his improvement when landing a Sligo 2m5f beginners contest on good to yielding ground last month. A repeat of that effort can see him holding off the attentions of some big dangers with the Enda Bolger-trained Everlastingpromise and recent Fairyhouse winner, Captain Cobajay. Stylish Moment a winner over the larger obstacles at Downpatrick earlier this month is no forlorn hope while Artic Pearl can be a force to be reckoned with if jumping fluently.
