Verdict

LIEUTENANT COLONEL made a winning debut in what looked a strong Punchestown bumper before chasing home the odds-on Vautour over hurdles at Navan. He's unlikely to meet anything as good here and should resume winning ways. Drumlee has been highly tried since making a winning start in a Thurles bumper last November and ran very well in a huge field at Navan last time. Macnicholson is better than his form figures suggest though he'll need to sharpen up his jumping against these but Waxies Dargle will have come on for his hurdling debut at Punchestown in October, his first start since April.
