Verdict

THE REAL ARTICLE, a dual winner in Grade 2 company over hurdles, jumped well until falling at Clonmel on his chasing bow and can make amends here. Lord Windermere did well over timber and should make an even better chaser judged by his two runs to date against stiff opposition. He'll be a threat but Marasonnien, who won the Grade 1 War Of Attrition Novice Hurdle at the Punchestown Festival in April, will need to jump better than he did when beaten a long way on his chasing debut at Navan. Prima Vista is a very useful hurdler who can do better over the bigger obstacles and Star Neuville made a promising start in what looked a very strong beginners' chase at Fairyhouse a couple of weeks ago.
