Verdict

FREE HANDSHAKE holds the edge on form and is taken to open his account on the back of his excellent Kilbeggan second. Cocoplum rates the obvious threat on form if none the worse for her Leopardstown fall, with Salvador Ziggy worth considering too on his debut for Gordon Elliott after an absence.
