Verdict
FRENCH DYNAMITE may be the answer here in what looks a very difficult race to pick the winner. The selection impressed on his only point-to-point performance and was subsequently bought for a huge fee. Connections will be disappointed if he can't at least make a place against these rivals. Yeah Babe unseated her rider at the first flight on her only racecourse appearance at Cork. If recovering from that experience then she holds every chance given her reputation. Trevena is another filly with a chance. Not only has she reasonable Flat form but there was plenty to like about her hurdles debut at Cork recently and she has the scope to improve.
  1. French Dynamite
  2. Trevena
  3. Yeah Babe
