The Sportsman's Verdict
Gordon Elliott has won the last three renewals of this and is double-handed as he looks to enhance his record with winning pointer Chosen Mate, who impressed on his hurdles debut at Fairyhouse last month, and the gutsy Tintangle, who has made the podium in Graded company the last twice and could appreciate the drop to Listed level here, with cheekpieces applied. Prince D'Aubrelle defied a 949-day layoff when winning in style at Tipperary in May and the three-time bumper winner has to be respected following another nine months off the track. However, preference is for Henry de Bromhead's SINORIA, who romped to success at Down Royal on Boxing Day and the 130,000 pounds purchase shaped like a top-class mare in the making on that occasion.
