Verdict

See Double You and Knockmehill Lady were both in fine form when last seen, though this looks plenty sharp enough for the former on his return. Tepalo has more recent form though he, too, has been tackling longer trips of late, winning over 3m at Sligo in August. Shesonlyahorse got off the mark at Galway last month but that was only a week after she'd finished almost five lengths behind Grange at Tipperary and Edward Harty's charge is 11lb better off now, though he was due to run at Punchestown yesterday. IS HERSELF ABOUT was given plenty to do at Galway last month but kept on well in the closing stages, finishing just ahead of First Impressions. She should do better here if raced closer to the pace and gets the nod.
