In depth

Verdict

This looks a very good test for Suntiep, who battled to victory in a Limerick bumper and makes his debut over hurdles. He should go well while Fence Me In, unbeaten in two starts between the flags, is another interesting recruit. But Hard To Swallow hasn't progressed as expected and has been disappointing since reappearing in October so it's CASABLANCA LILY who is handed the vote. She looked in need of a much stiffer test of stamina when coming with a late run over 2m2f at Limerick and today's trip and conditions look ideal.
