Verdict

Noel Meade has an exciting jumping prospect in CURLEY BILL, though the four-year-old has been handed a stiff test on his hurdling bow with a penalty for his Downpatrick bumper success. He's reported to have schooled brilliantly so he's taken to make a winning start. Totally Couture was around 10l behind him in that bumper before making a pleasing debut over hurdles at Navan where Fickle Fortune, who had plenty of strong form in bumpers, was just in front. This pair look sure to go well along with Shershewill and Toye Native in a race that should provide plenty of winners for the future.
