In depth

Verdict

Around The Clock and Enchanted Forest are entitled to respect while Patriots Vision made a decent debut at Galway but it's impossible to get away from the claims of ALLY CASCADE and Urano. The former, an impressive bumper winner at Fairyhouse last month, started odds-on for his hurdling debut at Naas a couple of weeks later but couldn't quite handle market rival Jezki. Both the winner and runner-up are tipped for bright futures and compensation awaits though Urano, unbeaten in three bumpers around the Provinces in France, could be anything.
