Verdict

Tulsa Jack must be on the shortlist as he found soft ground and much better company against him at Galway after landing a Limerick maiden. Shershewill gained her only hurdling victory on this track though over slightly shorter while COLDSTONESOBER has won over fences here and it's about time he was scoring over hurdles again, especially as he's in good form and is 12lb lower than over the bigger obstacles. Hero De Villeneuve has won three times over fences but never over timber while Tico hasn't been running well but is lurking on a lowly mark these days and shouldn't be dismissed.
