Verdict

Fox Le Bel showed plenty improvement for the switch to handicaps last time at Clonmel and can be given decent prospects from this 3lb higher mark while it's hard to knock the consistency of Something Sweet; who is as likely as any in this field to give a solid account. Olive D'Haguenet was third here last month at a big price but bombed since at Limerick. Rapid Response is a possible improver but MC ALPINE has displayed enough promise in his short hurdling career to suggest he'll get his head in front before long and he gets the vote.
  1. Mc Alpine
  2. Fox Le Bel
  3. Something Sweet
