Verdict

KOLUMBUS won the final race on this card a year ago and has run some very good races over hurdles in defeat. He wasn't at his best on heavy ground at Navan earlier this month and it will be a surprise if he's not in the firing-line so gets the vote over Udogo. Joseph O'Brien's charge ran quite well on his hurdling debut at Clonmel in September and has been in winning form on the all-weather at Dundalk over the winter. Soul Kaliber was in front of the selection last time but may have been better suited by the testing ground while Moroval ran a fine race behind Ask Nile over this trip at Clonmel before finding three miles on heavy going beyond him at Thurles. Hidden Charmer looks best of the remainder.
