Verdict

ROBIN DES FORET made a fairly seamless introduction to chasing at Ballinrobe recently and should have learned plenty while doing so. He'd have an advantage on these rivals on their hurdles form and looks likely to make up into a decent chaser for Willie Mullins. Peace News didn't get things spot on in his chasing debut at Down Royal but came out with a victory just the same. He should go well, as will Balbir Du Mathan in this less taxing environment. Screaming Colours was a shock winner last time and may not build on it while Roconga is capable of getting involved if fitter from his hurdles spin at Cork.
