Verdict

Manhattan Swing made a decent start over hurdles when not beaten far at Galway and will have benefited for the experience. Mizyen has been placed in all three starts over timber and has to come into the reckoning but SIZING INDIA is just preferred. The latter was still in with every chance when falling at the last over fences at Clonmel last time and earlier placed efforts over hurdles suggests he can open his account in this. Cliffside Park has shown some ability in bumpers and could go well if taking to jumping.
