Verdict

Isle View ran well for a long way before fading behind Apache Jack at Punchestown and that will have put him straight for this. Rudolf was just behind and looks held but Sunsetstorise ran a fine race over hurdles at Sligo in May before reverting to a bumper there in July. SEANCILL OIR is well exposed having been competing in handicaps but arguably produced her best performance to date at Downpatrick last time and can make her fitness and mares' allowance count. Noel Meade has his horses in top form so Couleur France, who is making his hurdling debut, must be a threat after showing up well in bumpers.
