Verdict
JUNGLE JUNCTION made a seamless progression to hurdling after some competent bumper performances when runner-up at Leopardstown on his debut in December. If progressing from that outing then he may take all the beating against what looks like a weak line-up in opposition. Bumper winner Joshua Webb is another who ran well on his hurdles debut and there is no reason why he can't improve again and give the selection most to do. Experienced bumper performer Hollow Sound rarely lets down connections and looks an interesting recruit to hurdling. Should he jump well then he can use his racecourse experience to good effect.
