Verdict

Raptor and Skorcher represent the in-form Willie Mullins team here. The former, who won over hurdles here in January, will have come on for his opening run over fences at Wexford and looks capable of much better. That experience may just enable him to overcome his stablemate who makes his chasing bow and hasn't been seen since May. BYERLEY BEAR made a promising chasing debut at Gowran and may have beaten the useful Donnas Palm at Wexford but for falling at the last and compensation awaits providing he is no worse for the experience. Medical Card looks a big threat as he produced a fine effort on his debut over fences at Down Royal and looks certain to win races before too long.
