Verdict

SMASH THE LAMP showed a really willing attitude when getting off the mark in a big-field handicap at Punchestown 3 weeks ago and with far less to prove than the majority of these, the follow up may well be on the cards. Champ Royal and Townhill Penny are both open to progress now handicapping and head the opposition.

  1. SMASH THE LAMP (IRE)
  2. CHAMP ROYAL (FR)
  3. TOWNHILL PENNY (IRE)
