The Sportsman's Verdict
OLDGRANGEWOOD ran a big race over this course and distance last month when third behind the progressive pair Kildisart and Mister Malarky, and, wearing cheekpieces for the first time, that is the form to concentrate on. The eight-year-old remains on a mark of 137 and merits plenty of respect for connections who thrive at this time of year. Sizing Granite ran a huge race to finish third in a competitive Punchestown handicap 16 days ago, while Van Gogh Du Granit is respected under a 7lb penalty for his recent Market Rasen triumph.
