Verdict

YOUNG TED was a bumper winner in the spring and made a positive start over obstacles when finishing fourth in a big field at Navan. Noel Meade's charge goes up in distance and should be right in the mix with the experience in his favour. Face Facts was a Listed scorer on the level in England and must rate a big danger starting out for the champion trainer. Cruises Street earns Barry Geraghty's approval from the McManus-owned runners and could go well while Empire Escape, Embrun Mitja, Felicity's Choice and Drop The Anchor all merit close scrutiny.
  1. Young Ted
