Verdict

SHARPS CHOICE ran well when finishing runner-up at Wexford last time and can open his account over hurdles by taking this opening contest. Coeur Joyeux has had more chances than most here and can put a disappointing effort on his debut for this yard behind him by finishing runner-up here with the long absent Now Let Go the selection to finish third on her hurdling debut.
  1. Sharps Choice
  2. Coeur Joyeux
  3. Now Let Go
