Verdict

HE'STHEWON left his low-key maiden hurdle efforts a long way behind when third in a big-field Limerick handicap at the end of December, despite being hampered 3 out. There may well be more to come from this 6-y-o and he earns the vote. Junior Rattler also took step forward at Limerick on his latest start and looks dangerous on this handicap debut, while Wanchu Bach also needs a second look.

  1. HE'STHEWON (IRE)
  2. JUNIOR RATTLER (IRE)
  3. WANCHU BACH (IRE)
