Verdict

UNEXPECTED DEPTH is a progressive sort and impressed on the back of 14 months off to make it 3 wins from his last 4 starts at Punchestown 3 weeks ago. That ought not to prove his limit and another good showing looks likely for Oliver McKiernan's 6-y-o. The Bosses Oscar, Jukebox Jive and Mrs Milner are a trio of others fancied to be in the mix.
