Verdict

The Willie Mullins-trained KATIE CONNELL is likely to be popular in the market here and can be expected to land the spoils in a competitive handicap. The five-year-old took the long way round when winning a 2m good ground bumper when last seen in July finishing 4½L ahead of Allardyce who has gone on to be a 118-rated hurdler putting in a number of consistent displays. The generally disappointing Jetez has more potential than a number of these and game bumper winner Alpine Cobra can hit the frame.
