The Sportsman's Verdict
Enda Bolger has won this six times in the last 10 years and looks to hold leading claims once again with the 11-year-old JOSIES ORDERS, who has proved as good as ever this season and has a fine record at this venue over this unique test the banks course presents. Stablemate Behind Time is interesting on his first try in this sphere for his new handler and was a useful performer when with Harry Fry, while Ballycasey could prove to be a class above in this discipline and wasn't disgraced when trying Cheltenham's cross-country course in December, despite having a bit to find with the selection. Peter Mahler has a good record in this contest and his Mtada Supreme may be the pick of his quartet following his second in the Risk Of Thunder Chase over this course in November. Hurricane Darwin was travelling well when falling in that banks affair and is another to consider.
