Verdict

The vote goes to MEMORY OF YOUTH, who has been going through a productive spell over hurdles recently and she's likely to prove a different proposition back in this sphere. Carried may have needed the run after 4 months off at Dundalk recently so he's put forward as the main threat back over the larger obstacles, ahead of School Lane and Drummullagh Rocky.
