Verdict

The runners that have already had some experience over hurdles don’t set a great standard although Henry Smith returns from a wind op and that may help him return to the form he showed on his debut over hurdles. Don McCain has a 22% strike-rate with his hurdlers at Bangor and that makes his useful German Flat recruit PROMISE OF PEACE interesting here on his hurdling debut after joining the card for €30,000. Other ex-Flat racers Lester Kris and True Companion are also worth noting on their hurdling debuts both for yards who have a good record in this sphere.
