Verdict

Smart Flat performer KAATSKILL NAP could well be up to the task on his first attempt over obstacles having joined the powerhouse at Closutton. Youghal By The Sea shaped well on sole outing over timber at Galway last year and would provide the champion jockey with an apt winner while Roibeard and Reaver were both of some note on the Flat and the former, in particular, is in excellent hands for this career-change.
  1. Kaatskill Nap
  2. Youghal By The Sea
  3. Roibeard
