Verdict

The return to action of the once highly-promising Flat Out after almost three years off will capture attention though he's likely to be back over fences shortly. CAPTAIN CEE BEE has reverted to hurdling in superb style and landed a Grade 2 at Tipperary last month. He couldn't quite cope when sent over a longer trip for the first time at Navan and, though this is obviously a difficult task, he can prove up to it. Fosters Cross ran well for a long way in that Tipperary event and is 11lb better off so should get much closer while Pink Coat has been going well and will be suited by the likely strong pace. Lastoftheleaders is better known as a chaser but he's 19lb lower over hurdles and scored at Galway the last time he ran over the smaller obstacles so he's a big threat.
