Verdict

Time To Work won twice on the Flat for Andrew Balding and has been placed over hurdles in both starts for his new yard. He looks sure to be winning soon but the older HAWK FLIGHT makes more appeal. The latter has been running well without winning recently and a repeat of his second at Leopardstown in January should be good enough in this company. Back To Balloo showed his first worthwhile form over C&D in December and could be thereabouts again, along with former pointer Mia's Vic and the more exposed Gentle Paddy.
