Verdict

Dual hurdles winner Claragh Native hasn't made the expected impact over fences and has now run 16 times without winning. Her overall form means she has to be respected but SIZING SOLUTION has much more scope and Jim Dreaper's charge, a winning point-to-pointer and having his first start over regulation fences, looks the one to be on. Zane Grey also has his first start over the bigger obstacles and, with his pedigree suggesting he'll be a chaser, his victory over hurdles at Wexford is a bonus. Obispo has won between the flags and over timber and is another to watch out for on his chasing debut.
