Verdict

An open-looking novice hurdle which can go to Noel Meade's LIGNOU, who ran at least as well as he ever has when sixth in a competitive handicap on return at Fairyhouse earlier this month and must be taken seriously back in calmer waters here. It's still very early days for Coach Carter and he gets the vote to chase the selection home, ahead of Varna Gold.
