Verdict

BENEMEADE progressed nicely in bumpers culminating in a victory at Downpatrick and his pedigree suggests he should make a fine hurdler. This doesn't look the most difficult of starts over hurdles and he can get off the mark. Kingclip has run over 2m4f on both starts over timber and this shorter trip could bring out more while the likes of Young Finnegan and Juan De Gracia have done enough to be considered for a place.
