Verdict

COOLE CRAFT seemed to find 2m on the sharp side at Gowran last month and can be expected to improve for the return to this longer trip as he bids to overcome a 2lb rise. The main danger may be C&D winner Rock On Barney, who produced a creditable performance when third over 2m4f at Punchestown last time. Winsor Vixen offered more when fifth over 2m at Thurles last time out and is another to consider.

Verdict

COOLE CRAFT rather bumped into one when runner-up at Gowran last time and is taken to gain reward for his recent consistency. Littlestickarubarb is interesting on her first outing for Adrian Maguire having shown promise in similar events last spring, while Rock On Barney arrives in form and also merits respect.
