Verdict

BALLYADAM looked an exciting prospect when off the mark at the second attempt in bumpers at Downpatrick in March, ridden more positively than on debut and drawing clear impressively. He's a useful prospect now hurdling and earns the vote. He's A Hardy Bloke and Colonel Mustard were similarly impressive in bumpers and are respected, along with Still Standing who boasts experience over hurdles.

  1. BALLYADAM (IRE)
  2. HES A HARDY BLOKE (IRE)
  3. STILL STANDING (IRE)
