Race Verdict

Weekend Millionair found only Shamiran too strong in a competitive handicap at Punchestown last month and that form gives him major claims here. However, he meets DUALLA LORD on 2lb worse terms than he would in a handicap and that might just tilt the balance in favour of Paul Nicholls' representative who was not disgraced when sent off favourite for a Grade 3 event at Sandown last time. Webberys Dream has been in good heart over the larger obstacles and he merits the utmost respect on his hurdling debut.

Selection: Dualla Lord        Danger: Weekend Millionair        Alternative: Webberys Dream
