Verdict

FLAWLESS ESCAPE made an impressive start to his rules career when successful in a Roscommon bumper a couple of months ago and with trainer Gordon Elliott in flying form at present he can make a winning debut over hurdles. The selection had previously finished runner-up in a point-to-point and can get the better of the experienced Burrows Saint who is making his Irish debut today while Eamon High can follow up his promising debut by claiming third.
  1. Flawless Escape
  2. Burrows Saint
  3. Eamon High
