Verdict

Whats Happening is on the upgrade and beat a decent field to score at Listowel while Credit Box could hardly have been more impressive at Ballinrobe, though that was her first victory over hurdles on her 32nd start. Burn And Turn reverted to hurdles after a spell over fences to run Blazing Tempo close over this C&D and a repeat will see her difficult to beat but DISTANT MEMORIES gets the nod. He jumped well when attempting to make all over 2m at Down Royal last time but had no answer when Prince Of Fire quickened. This longer trip looks just what's required and he can gain his second success. Thynetocatcher looks best of the remainder.
