Verdict
In pushing Sir Erec to a neck last season TIGER TAP TAP marked himself out a high-class prospect and although he remains winless three starts later all of them have been in Graded company. Back in a maiden today he will take an enormous amount of beating and gets the nod for Willie Mullins, Rich Ricci and Paul Townend. This race is not devoid of dangers however with Ashdale Bob who ran so well against another smart Mullins novice on debut chief among them. Unbeaten bumper winners Home By The Lee and Henry Brown are likely to be well up to winning maiden hurdles in the near future.
  1. Tiger Tap Tap
  2. Ashdale Bob
  3. Home By The Lee
