Verdict

REINE ANGEVINE was odds-on for her first three starts but won just one, a bumper at Killarney in August. She looked an improved performer when beating a big field over the C&D last month and with her allowance coming into play may have too much basic speed for Rogue Angel. Mouse Morris' point-to-point winner is a chaser in the making and didn't impress everyone at Galway last time though he'll love the heavy ground. Blacklough has battled on to land a Killarney bumper and a maiden hurdle at Fairyhouse and those qualities should stand him in good stead in these testing conditions. The remainder will all need to find improvement to get involved.
