Verdict

The manner of victory for SOLDIERS HILL in a maiden here last month was striking, Gordon Elliott's charge seemingly taking well to the new headgear. That was over 2m6f but he also won his bumper around here over this distance a year ago and he looks set for a big run with his rider today taking off 5lb. Tipperary maiden winner King Pellinor and recent Galway second Politicise both have their claims, while Rasiym also merits some though with Paul Townend staying on board following last month's handicap win at Kilbeggan.
