Verdict

Big Generator battled on to score at Wexford but makes his handicap debut on a high enough mark while Micks, a promising hurdler at this time a year ago, will need to do much better than he's shown so far over fences. SON OF MOYNE had been having problems with his jumping before a better effort at Tramore last month. He followed that with a comfortable success at Thurles and though dropping back in trip and racing from a 7lb higher mark he's expected to follow up. Benefit Scheme, who wasn't too far behind the selection at Thurles, will be better suited by this trip and looks a threat but Lusiad has now had 20 starts over fences without winning.
