Verdict

Few possess rock solid claims so we'll take a chance with DESCARO whilst keeping an eye on Dreamwalk and Racingisdreaming as they make their hurdling bows. Alazan was quite well supported for a Cheltenham handicap but he failed to fire there and hadn't looked the most straightforwards in his three runs prior to that. Mymateeric only won a modest affair at Fakenham where Peace Corps performed well below market expectations so they have something to prove. Beat The Devil has been highly tried but needs to show more before he can be recommended and of more interest are Regal Lyric and a few of the newcomers. Tom Tate won this race last year and Regal Lyric is better than he was able to show at Musselburgh but he does have something to prove on the back of that run. Dreamwalk won his final start on the level off 78 and could be an interesting recruit as may Racingisdreaming be given that he wasn't beaten too far when last of six in a Group 3 last year. However, the suggestion is Descaro who twice finished second in four starts over obstacles in Ireland which makes him of interest at this level for his new yard. The form of his Punchestown second is respectable enough and the booking of Graham Lee is a positive.
