Verdict

FLASH DE TOUZAINE made quite an encouraging start over hurdles when second to a promising sort from the Willie Mullins yard at Tramore last month and may be capable of going one better. Bold Assassin should have more to offer for his leading connections on the back of his Fairyhouse third in January and looks next best ahead of Downpatrick runner-up Max Flamingo.
