Verdict

The Denis Hogan-trained, LICKLIGHTER can win his first hurdle in 17 starts following up on a solid run at Down Royal last month. The son of Brian Boru wears cheekpieces for the first time and can get the better of Baboin making his hurdling debut for Joseph O'Brien, the Peter Fahey, Fast Company gelding, Room To Roam and Mats Hall.
