Verdict

It's hard to get away from the clear and obvious chances of KAATSKILL NAP following a spin on the Flat over 2m recently. The seven-year-old in the colours of owner Tony Bloom had shown a good attitude in a number of starts over hurdles before a lay-off since October 2018. The Gordon Elliott-trained Talk Of The Town surprised with a win in a Kilbeggan bumper at odds of 20/1 beating an 8/13f stablemate to boot. The five-year-old appears the biggest danger on hurdling debut. Enjoy D'allen for trainer Peter Fahey and Hand In My Pocket for trainer John McConnell can compete for the places.
