Verdict

Trainer Colin McBratney and rider Danny Fitzsimmons are forces to be reckoned with at their local track and FORPADDYDATARMACER has provided the pair with two easy victories between the flags recently. He's still a youngster in these terms and with more to come he can gain his first victory under Rules. Waddingtown Hero also enters the fray in double winning form though it's taken him a very long time to get his act together between the flags. Katie Walsh is on board Keep On Track for Enda Bolger and the Dromahane point-to-point winner does have the advantage of experience under Rules as does Norwich Flyer, runner-up in a poor hunter-chase at the Punchestown Festival and having had much more experience than most of these.
