Verdict

Sitcom followed her victory in a beginners event at Thurles with a moderate run on her handicap debut over fences on the same track. BOXER BEAT has a terrible strike-rate having won just once if fifty career starts. However, he's better over fences and has competed at a much higher level so is handed the vote to double his tally. All Day Long makes his handicap debut and his form over fences has been poor while Budwser is still a maiden and has been at huge odds for all three runs over fences. An Dearthair Og showed promise in bumpers but fell on his chasing debut which looks to have affected his confidence.
