Verdict

Apisata has been bought for hurdling after scoring on the Flat in Germany so is one to keep an eye on, though the winning bumpers Blow The Doors Off and VERY WOOD should fight this out. The former made a big impression when scoring at Sligo in May but the latter will take all the beating as he followed his point-to-point success with an impressive victory in a big field at Punchestown in April.
