Verdict

Winning point-to-pointer Foxrock was expected to make a successful start over hurdles here last month but unseated Ruby Walsh at the first though he was impeded. Hard To Swallow was just touched off by Suntiep over a longer trip at Navan so looks sure to take some catching while supporters of Mala Beach will be hoping for compensation after he ran out when holding every chance here last month. He probably would have finished in front of Thunder And Roses that day and looks certain to go well though the hurdling debut of CITY SLICKER has been eagerly awaited. Willie Mullins' charge showed the benefit of his opening run at Naas with a very smooth success at Fairyhouse last month and can make a winning start over timber.
