Verdict
GOAHEADWITHTHEPLAN can build on a satisfying debut run at Navan in December to land the spoils here at the expense of the improving The Broghie Man for trainer Padraig Roche. The Denis Hogan-trained Bal De Rio should not be taken lightly following a fine second of eight 1L adrift of future winner, Fakir in a Limerick novice hurdle over a similar trip in December. All About Joe and newcomer Robindevidastar could be worthy of more consideration as post time approaches.
