Struggled in a couple of bumpers and it was a similar story switched to hurdles at Leopardstown (2m4f, good-to-yielding) in December. Hood (first time) replaces the blinkers won last time out.

Forecast

The Big Getaway (8/11), Santana Plessis (3/1), Lucky Ranger (10/1), Shaws Bridge (10/1), Resurrected Duke (12/1), Russian Diamond (12/1), Fiddlerontheroof (16/1), Axiomatic (16/1), Epson Du Houx (20/1), Falco De Candale Aa (20/1), Heroes Of Renown (20/1), Big King (25/1), Ferocious (33/1), Dreamonlad (40/1), Hesamanofhisword (50/1), Mister Melia (66/1), Grove Hill (100/1), Stormy Glenn (100/1)

Verdict

A classy looking bumper can go the way of SANTANA PLESSIS who has placed on both previous bumper starts and he looks capable of going one better than when finishing runner-up at Punchestown last time out. The Big Getaway was an expensive purchase following his maiden point-to-point victory and he can take second for a top yard while third place can go to Lucky Ranger who performed well when fourth in a maiden hurdle on debut in December.
  1. Santana Plessis
  2. The Big Getaway
  3. Lucky Ranger
