Verdict

The second division of this low-grade event is tricky. Kick Start ran his best race so far when stepped up in trip at Wexford and is on the same mark and Afram Blue isn't badly treated after a good run at Downpatrick. Wyndcrest showed his first sign of ability over hurdles at Thurles last month and wouldn't need to improve much but the vote goes to HE IS TOP CLASS. Donal Hassett's charge has taken a long time to get the hang of things but ran on strongly over the minimum trip at Wexford last time and this should bring out the best in him.
