Verdict

Volt Sun and Tawariyka would need massive improvement to get competitive against the three winners and Hartside was a very fortunate winner when Fatcatinthehat fell at the last with the race at his mercy at Punchestown. Dalasiri showed a little bit of promise when a 33/1 chance on his debut and had obviously benefited greatly from the run as he was very well supported and scored comfortably at Cork. He's a superbly-bred son of Dylan Thomas and has great potential but those who witnessed the debut performance of DOGORA at Limerick won't want to miss him and he's the one to be on.
