Realt Dubh was due to run in a handicap over timber here yesterday afternoon and this top-class chaser would obviously be strongly fancied if taking his chance in this. However, he still wouldn't be certain to beat CATCH ME on these terms and Edward O'Grady's charge looks set to gain his first success since 2009. He pulled up in the Irish National last time but his superb effort when narrowly beaten by Cape Tribulation in the Pertemps Final at Cheltenham was given a huge boost when the winner followed-up at Aintree. Won In The Dark is another who can't get his head in front and he ran poorly on the Flat at Clonmel last week which was presumably supposed to be a confidence booster. Flycorn has plenty to do on official ratings but looks best of the remainder.
