Form & Verdict
Decent record after a break and will handle the ground; plenty of creditable efforts in valuable, and better-contested, handicaps last term after winning at Clonmel and this race represents a nice opportunity for him to land a good pot.

6yo been solid over fences all year and will be suited by trip and ground; Gilligan's claim negates rise for Galway win where he knuckled down well up the hill.

J: Jack Kennedy

T: Gordon Elliott

Three-time handicap chase winner; gained his latest success off 126 over 2m at Naas last month; raised 4lb for that and gave another solid display when fourth to the British-trained Madara in a well-contested Leopardstown handicap; has plenty of experience but may not cope with the less exposed Mister Policeman.

Form & Verdict
His wins over further (stays 3m1f) have come at left-handed tracks but good second to useful mare here in March (2m1f, soft); weakened tamely behind Pat's Choice at Galway but probably needed the run after 105 days off and could be different proposition here.

Latest win was off 12lb lower last summer (3m1f) and mark has been edging up after three seconds during the winter, most recently at Leopardstown with Birchdale just behind him in third; largely consistent and ground-versatile type should be thereabouts again.
