Verdict

POWDER HOUND, winner of a Class 2 handicap at Chester for Andrew Balding in September, made a highly encouraging hurdles debut at Fairyhouse behind the potentially very useful Abbyssial, who like the third Windsor Queen won next time out. Noel Meade's charge can go one better though Rock The World has been coming up against some very smart novices in huge fields and won't go down without a battle. Todd is held by the selection on a line through Windsor Queen but Little Rocky produced a cracking effort behind the unbeaten Clondaw Court here last month and can also get involved in a race that should provide plenty of future winners.
