Verdict

MORGA is unraced over hurdles but with a rating of 93 on the Flat should be capable of beating this moderate bunch providing she takes to the winter game. Bumper winner Keith's Delight has shown a glimmer of ability and that could be enough to see him in the frame while Shanliss didn't perform badly for a 50/1 chance on her racecourse debut at Down Royal last month. Colleen Bawn was placed several times on the Flat in France and arrives at Colm Murphy's yard via a couple of runs in the UK. She looks the type to do better but the main threat looks to be Ellie Mia, who hasn't been beaten far in her two runs over timber during the winter.
