Verdict

A tightly-knit handicap in which it could be worth taking a chance on David O'Meara's EAGLE COURT getting back on track now he has ground conditions to suit and a recent run under his belt. C&D winner Benadalid seems sure to build on his reappearance sixth here and rates the chief danger, although Dontaskmeagain would be interesting if turned out quickly after his good comeback on Friday.

  1. EAGLE COURT (IRE)
  2. BENADALID
