Verdict

It would come as no surprise were hurdles newcomers ROSGALME and Ragnar Lodbrok to come to the fore given the level they achieved in bumpers last season. Both ought to relish this trip now hurdling, with marginal preference for Noel Meade's representative.

  1. RAGNAR LODBROK (IRE)
  2. ROSGALME (IRE)
  3. OPTUM (IRE)
