In depth

Verdict

Hop In has been very consistent in handicaps over hurdles on heavy ground and has the pedigree to make a chaser. Winning point-to-pointer Kandinski started favourite for his chasing debut over 2m4f at Sligo but couldn't handle Coolking and this may be on the short side. BLAZING SONNET did well over hurdles and has shown plenty of ability in her four starts over fences so gets a good chance to lose her maiden tag. Lough Roe Lady is taking a big drop in trip after pulling up over 3m1f at Punchestown and her earlier form had been over further. Turica has always been more likely to make a chaser and has shown enough to suggest she is one to keep an eye on. Kilcarry Bridge looks a big threat as his close second to Sitcom over 2m2f here in November is solid form and he's been found out over longer trips subsequently.
