Verdict

A typically wide open handicap with the vote in favour of LOW LIE THE FIELDS. A low-mileage sort, he ran his best race to date when fourth on handicap debut at Fairyhouse last month and there is a distinct possibility he can build on that for his good yard. Ballyshannon Rose, Vipers Nest and Glenabo Bridge head up the dangers.

  1. LOW LIE THE FIELDS (IRE)
  2. BALLYSHANNON ROSE (IRE)
  3. VIPERS NEST (IRE)
