The Sportsman's Verdict
RAIN IN SPAIN was beaten less than a length when second at Punchestown last time and there is every chance the dual hurdle scorer could make a welcome return to the winner's enclosure off a mark just 3lb higher. Lockeen Girl has struggled to string a sequence of solid performances together this summer but is capable at her best, while Ar Eagla Na Heagla and Chisholm Trail are interesting recruits to the handicap ranks. Lady Of The Sea and Our Rachael were both silver medalists when last seen in this sphere and are others capable of getting involved.
