Verdict

The Ross O'Sullivan-trained BENEFIT RUN won at the second time of asking over the larger obstacles when landing a Thurles 2m2f beginners contest in November and looks capable of improvement to win again here under jockey Rachael Blackmore. The Beneficial gelding hinted at a cosy win last time out and can get the better of the Declan Queally-trained Bee A Beneficiary who is clearly better than her last run suggests. Itscatrionaschoice, the mount of Jack Kennedy and Tintown Robin look set to compete for remaining prize money.
