Verdict

Jetson is a useful hurdler making his debut over fences who is well worth keeping an eye on but this isn't the easiest of starts. Nearest The Pin showed plenty of potential over fences last season and recent runs over hurdles and on the Flat will have put him straight. Lord Ben has jumped well in the main though keeps making the odd mistakes which has proved costly. Mackeys Forge stays further than this and could prefer more give in the ground but Mickelson appeared to find dropping back to 2m1f at Ballinrobe in his favour last time so should get into the mix. PROTARAS was beaten by a 50/1 chance on his chasing debut at Galway but jumped really well and looked the winner until his stamina gave out. He'll know much more here and with the shorter trip in his favour is taken to gain his first success over fences.
