Verdict

FLOUEUR got off the mark over fences in a useful maiden at Fairyhouse 2 weeks ago and his opening mark in this sphere looks a fair one. He shades the vote over The Dabbler, who emerged with plenty of credit when runner-up at Fairyhouse in November. Champagne Platinum is another to consider.
