Verdict

Six of these, including point-to-pointer Classic Cut, won last time out and it's one of them, SAMANTHA JONES, who can complete a double. Mick Winters' mare had already won a hurdle and scored between the flags when making her chasing debut at Tramore in May and she duly obliged so back over timber she looks reasonably treated. Akatara doesn't win often but had dropped to a fair mark when catching Kalico Kim on the line at Kilbeggan. Posh Frock had been in poor form before showing her liking for fast ground at Wexford though a 9lb rise tempers enthusiasm but Never Said That was showing his first sign of ability when attracting good support at Tramore and a 7lb rise shouldn't prevent another big run.
