Verdict

Bumper winner The Story So Far is likely to get in the shake-up, while Hollow Rodger has similar claims if she can improve from her Thurles track debut. This should go to OLYMPIC MAN, beaten at 2-5 when runner-up at Galway in October, but is likely to be too good for these. [Justin O’Hanlon]
