Verdict

Difficult to get away from the clear and obvious chances of the Charles Byrnes-trained DOCTOR DUFFY. The seven-year-old has shown a good attitude on both starts over fences earlier this month and can improve on his pleasing effort at Roscommon, despite sent off the 8/15f. The gelding can hold off the attentions of 145-rated handicap hurdler, Braid Blue on chasing debut for trainer and jockey combination of Gordon Elliott/Davy Russell. The Henry De Bromhead-trained Demain Des L'aube and Noel Kelly's, Hear No Evil can compete for remaining prize money, while Roman ROck for trainer Mouse Morris should not be taken lightly.
