Verdict

Fort Smith had shown enough promise in bumpers to be sent off favourite on his debut over hurdles at Gowran in January but fluffed his lines and was well beaten. Winning point-to-pointer VEDETTARIAT didn't show much in his two opening bumpers but did much better on his latest start at Clonmel last month and with further progress likely can take this for the Mullins team. Patsio has done well enough behind useful winners to suggest he can do better but Moores Road, a winner between the flags at Dromahane, disappointed when fancied for a maiden hurdle at Clonmel.
