Verdict

DRUMACOO was a promising novice over timber when he left Michael Hourigan for Ben Pauling in 2015. Things didn't completely work out in Britain, where he managed one win from three runs over fences during 2016. On his second start back with this yard, he ran a highly promising race over fences here 17 days ago and would surely have scored bar a slow jump at the last. He had shaped like the most likely winner and, from a 7lb lower hurdles mark, can make amends by going one better here. Out Of The Loop is going the right way this season and commands respect despite a ratings hike for winning here in December while lightly-raced French import Sire Du Berlais and Turbojet are others that merit close scrutiny.
