Verdict

CHICAGO won three times on the Flat for Aidan O'Brien and looked certain to do well over hurdles when a close third to Minella Foru at Listowel. He can improve and take this though Some Hawk, who showed real potential in a couple of strong bumpers in April, looks a useful recruit to hurdling. Spa Hill won a bumper at Killarney in August and has performed with credit on his last two starts over timber though he finished behind Gambling Girl in a bumper at Bellewstown and the latter has since run reasonably well on the Flat at the Curragh. Newcomer Benalex Park is one to keep an eye on in the market.
