Verdict

The J P McManus-owned FAIRLY LEGAL can build on an encouraging return to action finishing fourth of 12 beaten 8½L in a Naas handicap chase over a similar trip on soft to heavy ground last month. The nine-year-old can get off the mark over the larger obstacles at the ninth time of asking possibly getting the better of the vastly improved Shanroe Al C who will have to carry 16lb more than he did when landing a Tipperary handicap over a similar trip when last seen in October. Enduring Love and the Gordon Elliott-trained Final List should not be underestimated.
  1. Fairly Legal
