Verdict

The Paul Nolan-trained WILD DESIRE won for the second time over hurdles when landing a handicap on good to yielding ground off a 12lb lower mark over C&D last month. The daughter of Beneficial has adept claimer, Sean O'Keefe in the plate to part off-set the rise in the weights. Robin Gold, who arrives here on the back of a double over timber at Thurles and Clonmel last month can emerge as the biggest danger with Midland Millie and Gambling Mistress left to compete for remaining prize money.
