Verdict

ANCIENT EMPIRE kept on strongly at the finish when third over 2m at Kilbeggan last time and it might just be that this step up in trip, coupled with the fitting of first-time cheekpieces, could be the making of him. Celtic Monarch and Bronco Bill are both capable of making an impact at this level too and could scrap it out for the silver medal.

Verdict

ANCIENT EMPIRE ran his best race to date, that despite suggesting a much stiffer test would suit ideally when third over 2m at Kilbeggan recently. This ought to be right up his street on that evidence and he can do better now handicapping. Bronco Bill showed plenty of ability remains on the back of a lengthy absence at Roscommon in June and along with Make My Heart Fly, heads up the dangers.
