Verdict

CURLEY BILL has been a beaten favourite on both starts over timber though he hasn't run badly. He arrives in excellent form with a victory on the Flat at Galway to his credit and should take this before going on to better things. Fantasy King has proved his versatility on the level and made a bright enough start over hurdles here earlier this month to suggest he will do well in this sphere. Tellherimhere was just in front of him in that latter event but had much more experience and may not confirm the form. Director's Forum had some strong bumper form but hasn't shown anything so far over timber so Super Cloud may offer more of a threat as he ran well despite several errors behind Massini's Trap at Ballinrobe.
