Verdict

The Denis Hogan-trained ALABASTER shaped well in defeat at Bellewstown recently finishing fourth of the 14 runners. That run should have him in a good position the get off the mark over hurdles at the fourth time of asking for connections. The six-year-old can see off the attentions of the Gordon Elliott-trained Fight For Love under jockey Davy Russell, who is likely to emerge as the biggest danger. Stylish Moment for trainer Eoin Doyle looks next best following an encouraging comeback run at Bellewstown this month.
