Verdict

SKIBABE produced a very taking performance to score at Fairyhouse where there looked much more to come. He faces stronger opposition but is progressing enough to make the step-up and take this. The ex-German Flat winner Landero hasn't quite fulfilled expectations after scoring at Downpatrick in June but What's Happening appeared unsettled by a jumping error at Gowran after winning a bumper and a maiden hurdle. Free To Dream landed a maiden at Ballinrobe in August but hasn't shown much since and was beaten a long way in a handicap last time and Ardboe Abbey is making his debut over timber.
