Verdict

DEAL WITH IT has disappointed in three bumpers starts since February but more expected here and the Gigginstown House Stud gelding can get off the mark here on hurdling debut in a contest that won't take a lot of winning. The Henry De Bromhead trained five-year-old can add to the impressive record of the yard at this meeting over the last three years and can hold off the attentions of Polished Steel, Design Matters and Buckie Cullen.
