Verdict

SMITTY BACALL edged out a far less-exposed rival to end a long losing run at Tipperary last month, and with the pair miles clear of the rest, he has to be of interest in his follow-up bid now back over fences from only 1 lb higher. Fellow last-time-out winners Marshalled and Abraham head up the opposition.
