Verdict

A case can be made for a few here but the most persuasive one is for the thriving MATTIE'S MOUNTAIN who has been upped 7 lb for his most recent Fairyhouse success but still looks weighted to have a very big say. Sargent Lightfoot appeals as the one to give him most to do on the back of his unfortunate Punchestown second, with last year's winner Southerner sure to make his presence felt too.
