Verdict

DEILGINS had loads in hand when scoring at Clonmel in February and, having made a successful reappearance back over hurdles, is fancied to continue the winning sequence returning to the larger obstacles. Enol Pierji caught the eye last time and looks a danger along with Cushinstown Finest.
