Verdict

PORT STANLEY ran a long way below his best switched to handicap company at Leopardstown back in February. Having shown useful form when runner-up at Fairyhouse in maiden chases both starts prior to that, he's a confident selection to finally get his head in front for Jessica Harrington. The Very Man rates an obvious threat after an encouraging chasing debut last month, ahead of Rocket Lad.

  1. PORT STANLEY (IRE)
  2. THE VERY MAN (IRE)
  3. ROCKET LAD (IRE)
