Verdict

ARTIC PEAL has been in fine form over hurdles, and seems to still be improving for Martin Brassil after running a fine race in second at Fairyhouse last time out. He's gone up 3lb but that seems fair based on what he has achieved, and he is taken to record a second win in three starts here. Presenting Mahler is a better chaser than hurdler but ran well at Limerick last time and could hit the frame if repeating that level of form, while dual-purpose performer Aa Bee See also needs considering after a recent win on the Flat.
