Verdict

THREE LOUD KNOCKS has yet to strike under Rules, but this dual point winner pulled clear of the rest when runner-up in a Clonmel hunter chase last time and is worth supporting in an open-looking race, assuming that Routine Excellence doesn't make the cut. Hollybank King is another who will be a player if getting a run but, as things stand, Enduring Love and Echoes of Family rate the main dangers.

  1. THREE LOUD KNOCKS (IRE)
  2. ENDURING LOVE (IRE)
  3. ECHOES OF FAMILY (IRE)
