Verdict

A P McCoy's presence on board Carrigmartin is interesting as his mount hasn't run since April. Eddie Harty must have him ready and the fact that he's 11lb better in over hurdles suggests he can go well. Discoteca completed a four-timer before disappointing at the Galway Festival but a recent run on the Flat will have put him straight and he makes his handicap debut off a fair mark. Silver Shuffle is another who has performed well on the level recently and his best form over timber would see him in the firing line while the once very promising Il Fenomeno is on a retrieval mission after a couple of poor efforts. Queiros Bleu may just be a few pounds high in the weights so this looks another for Willie Mullins via TENNIS CAP. Beaten at short prices on his four starts earlier this year, he reappeared with an impressive victory over the odds-on Thunder And Roses at Cork and looks to have been let in lightly for his handicap debut.
