Verdict

A winner at Navan on his penultimate start, ASK AND ANSWER was still in front and yet to be asked for his effort when carried out by a loose horse after 2 out at Clonmel 10 days ago and he could be worth siding with to gain compensation now. Iridescent, Holiday In Kerry and Boogily Lane, back from an absence, head up the dangers.
