Verdict

BLISSFUL MOMENT, runner-up in last year's Duke Of Edinburgh at Royal Ascot, started a short-priced favourite for his hurdling debut at Navan in March but performed moderately. That should have done him good, however, and he can make a successful start to the new campaign. Dr Linzi is a progressive type who won a bumper at Galway before a promising debut over timber at Wexford though Operating has to be the main threat. The Punchestown bumper winner ran into a fine prospect when runner-up to Conbanan Lad there on his hurdling debut and with further progress guaranteed he'll be winning soon. Triple bumper winner Rory O'Moore is a real nice prospect for hurdling and should get involved in a race that should provide plenty of pointers for the winter.
