Verdict

BOB LE BEAU has gone close at Down Royal in both starts over hurdles. Jessica Harrington's charge gets the nod in this as Reafadda's best efforts of last season came in testing ground. The latter should have come on for a recent pipe-opener at Killarney while River Slaney has a shout on his earlier second at Thurles. Bumper winner Sizing India made little impression on his return from two years off the track but Soteira could get involved if building on his hurdling debut second at Clonmel.
