Verdict

IL FENOMENO attempted to make all over 2m4f at Kilbeggan but found the trip and the useful Seefood too much to handle. He'll take some catching in that kind of form and gets the vote. Time To Work fell when struggling in the same race and didn't impress with his jumping but Cavite Beta is a horse with potential who was having his first start since October when runner-up over hurdles a couple of weeks ago. He should give the selection a run while Old Laxey is one to note for the future.
