Verdict

TOP BANDIT gained a deserved first success in bumpers last time and should be well prepared for his hurdling debut by his top stable, so he's marginally preferred to Barbados, who also has his first go over obstacles arriving on the back of a Flat success at Listowel. Dixie Flyer is the clear pick of those with experience in this discipline.

  1. TOP BANDIT
  2. BARBADOS (IRE)
  3. DIXIE FLYER (IRE)
