Verdict

HOUSESOFPARLIAMENT hasn't live up to the early hype of his hurdling career but the smart Flat performed took a decent step in the right direction last time out when second at Ballinrobe and is an intriguing contender now tackling 3m for the first time. He's worth a shot and any money behind him would increase confidence. Top Of The Town should find his feet soon for his new yard while Lasoscar produced a solid run over the trip last time and should be in the mix. Manuka and Definite Soldier – despite the latter being out of the weights – are also worth considering.
