Verdict

FRERE TUCK went into a few notebooks on his Navan hurdle debut and is taken to build on that very promising run and prove too strong for Lorna Fowler's Colonel Mustard. Lifetime Ambition has reached the frame on all 3 hurdle starts and ought to be in the shake-up again, while Hurricane Cliff retains potential despite failing to fire at Leopardstown over Christmas.

  1. FRERE TUCK (FR)
  2. COLONEL MUSTARD (FR)
  3. LIFETIME AMBITION (IRE)
