Verdict

Regusci looks to have lost his confidence following a fall when last seen over hurdles at Cork in May as he's been well beaten on the Flat several times subsequently. FORMAL BID has taken a long time to get his act together over timber and produced his first placed effort on his 14th start at Kilbeggan. He's best on fast ground and this won't take much winning so he's given the nod. City Line has now had 25 races over hurdles without winning but has been placed eight times so the assessor can't release his grip. Andy Oliver's horses are in sparkling form so Jabus should be considered as he's another well suited by the ground conditions.
