Verdict

LISTENHERETOMEJACK is going the right way and can make light of a 6 lb rise for his Thurles win 3 weeks ago. Winston Wolfe has been on the premises in similar events in recent weeks and can play a part again, while Union Park took a step forward when third at Wexford last time and is less exposed than a lot of these.
