The Sportsman's Verdict
Another highly competitive renewal of this contest but the one that stands out is GETAREASON, who filled third place behind Battleoverdoyen and Sams Profile in a Grade 1 two starts ago. He has plenty of hurdles experience, which could be vital in a race of this nature, and a mark of 140 may underestimate his ability. Dallas Des Pictons has been popular in the market for this race since his victory at Leopardstown in early February and he has to be respected, although he may not be as well handicapped as some of those with Graded form. Defi Bleu failed to fire last time out but his previous narrow defeat to Derrinross in a Grade 2 at Limerick gives him a good shout. Others to consider in a wide-open event are Daybreak Boy, Early Doors and Pym.
