Verdict

Somedaysomehow has bits and pieces of form over longer trips on heavy ground but hasn't run since February. Chasing Shadows has also been racing over further though her best form has been over the minimum trip and she'll like the ground. Akatara is still a maiden over hurdles after 23 starts and she's another who has been competing over longer distances and though Carries Darling has some strong form she has a penalty to carry for her victory in a Limerick bumper last November. That may just let in CELTIC CAILIN, who finished first past the post at Downpatrick in August but was relegated to second after interference and produced another fine effort last time when runner-up to the promising Tasitiocht at Navan. Hurdling newcomer Dubh Go Leir has done well in bumpers and is an obvious threat if taking to the obstacles.
