Verdict

THEATRE EVENING was purchased for an astonishing 175,000 euros at Goffs after his debut in a point-to-point at Dromahane where he unseated his rider at the last when in with every chance. He's obviously highly regarded and can make a winning debut under Rules as this won't take much winning. Bob Ford easily won an Irish point before starting favourite for a Chepstow bumper where he finished a decent third. He'll improve for that and looks a threat while Kims Quest showed some potential in a Newton Abbot bumper last time and her allowance will be a help. Water Wagtail looks best of the remainder.
