Verdict

Bumper-winner KILLER MODE offered plenty to work on when runner-up on hurdles bow at Naas a fortnight ago and with improvement forthcoming, he looks the answer. Hiaou was still going well when brought down at Leopardstown and he looks the main danger.

  1. KILLER MODE (IRE)
  2. HIAOU (FR)
  3. GOVEN (FR)
