In depth

Verdict

FOLLOWMEUPTOCARLOW had been in very good form over hurdles before a debut second to My Murphy over fences at Fairyhouse. He occupied the same position in what looked a decent contest over this course and distance last month and there doesn't look much to prevent him gaining his first success over the bigger obstacles. Leavethelighton has been progressing over timber lately and, as he's bred for chasing, could prove a threat. Winning hurdler Juan De Gracia should do better in time over fences and may have more scope than stablemate An Dearthair Og though Shamiran looks a better alternative as he is a useful hurdler making a belated debut over the bigger obstacles. Third Opinion beat the useful Curley Bill over timber at Down Royal in December 2012 but hasn't run since pulling up in a Grade 2 hurdle at Leopardstown a month later.
