Verdict

HANDSWORTH has made a positive start over fences and appears to have been handed a feasible mark, so he takes preference over Siberian Star, who ran well when third at Thurles a month ago. Time And Times is potentially well in if he can replicate his chasing form back over the smaller obstacles, so he's another one to consider.

  1. HANDSWORTH (IRE)
