Verdict

Plenty of contestants with little chance of winning with a tentative nod going to AN DROICHEAD GORM who although is yet to win a race over fences has been showing plenty of consistency. He finished third last time out over course and distance after if repeating that effort could go close. Drummullagh Rocky who have to post a career best effort win land this but he has the benefit of a recent win and possibly had excuses when he was pulled up in his latest outing. He is the only course and distance winner in the line-up. Enduring Love could be a contender but enthusiasm for his chances are tempered by his poor overall jumping ability.
  1. An Droichead Gorm
  2. Drummullagh Rocky
  3. Enduring Love
