Verdict

This has produced a cracking turnout with most of these likely to be paying there way over fences. Churchfield Champ jumps and stays well and sets a good standard though there are likely to be one or two who improve past him. They definitely include The Real Article, who took his time to find his feet over the bigger obstacles but looked a nice prospect when slamming Lord Ben at Limerick. Burn And Turn probably found the ground a bit lively when behind Tribes And Banner at Punchestown and could do with some rain, a remark that also applies to the very progressive Spring Heeled, runner-up on heavy going at Galway last time. Sizing Symphony had no problems with fast ground when reappearing after a very long break to beat Shake The Bucket at Tipperary and looks a big threat but it's his stablemate SIZING MACHINE, who made a spectacular start over fences when beating subsequent winner Raajih at Kilbeggan, that is given the nod.
