Verdict

Hard Fought was tried in a handicap last time but weakened quickly once headed. She should do better back against maidens but is starting to look exposed. LITTLE JIMMY BROWN has won between the flags and made a fair debut over timber when fourth at Wexford. He's preferred to Discover Wexford who has become a little disappointing. Jamesmichael has finished second in a bumper here and could be the danger to the selection as he has more scope than Killabraher Cross.
