LEAH CLAIRE continues to go very well on the Flat as she showed with her second to Bondage in a Tipperary handicap last month. She ran well enough in her two starts over timber to suggest there is plenty more to come and can take this. Alhellal has been progressing nicely in bumpers and looks a potentially decent hurdler but Blue Ridge Lane ran poorly at Kilbeggan on Friday and Esporao has had his chances. Khayar was beaten 12 lengths by House Rules at Listowel but had the remainder well beaten off and the winner is probably useful but Native Palm has been looking one-paced and may need further.
