Verdict
The Gordon Elliott-trained COLUMN OF FIRE was still in contention when falling two out in a Fairyhouse contest on yielding ground earlier this month and can get off the mark at the sixth time of asking. The six-year-old had previously running well in defeat in a number of starts since November and can get the better of the former Joseph O'Brien-trained Abyssinian. The Willie Mullins-trained Rebellito is likely to improve from his debut run at this venue in November while Friary Rock can run a creditable race and is clearly better than his last run suggests.
