Verdict

CALICOJACK can get off the mark over hurdles at the sixth time of asking for connections following some solid runs in defeat when hitting the frame on no less than four occasions. The seven-year-old can improve on his third of 23 at Fairyhouse last month and see off the attentions of the potentially exciting, Batts Rock and the Henry De Bromhead-trained Generalisation.
