Verdict
YOU RAISED ME UP is taken to carry on his progress and go one better than when finishing a close second on his hurdles debut at Listowel recently. That was his first run for a long while and he should be sharper today. Soldiers Hill is another who made a pleasing debut over hurdles and while only finishing fourth that day at Navan, he has the scope to improve and maybe give the selection most to do. Sixshooter makes his hurdles debut but has some solid bumper form and is well regarded. A check on the stable's confidence in the market could do no harm. Shanwalla is another who made a promising start over hurdles and would not need to improve too much more to be in the shake up.
