Verdict
DISCORDANTLY has proved frustrating for backers no more so than last time out at Leopardstown when appearing to ping his fences before making a schoolboy mistake halfway round. On balance he should be worth another chance especially in this field though backers need to be aware he may not finish. Calicojack has been brought on slowly and showed plenty of promise on his chase debut at Thurles last month. He is entitled to improve on that and could be the one to take advantage if the selection fails to get round. Flawless Escape has had his fair share of problems over fences but if his mistakes have been ironed out then he could go well.
  1. Discordantly
  2. Flawless Escape
  3. Calicojack
