Verdict

HURRICANE SKY made a moderate debut over timber a year ago then produced a better run behind Call Me Bubbles at Navan. He won twice on the Flat in the spring and looks progressive enough to defy an absence and take this. Winning bumper Pumbaa attempted to make all at Listowel in September and was only headed close home so he'll take some catching while Bawntameena ran well enough at Thurles last month to suggest he can get into the action. Ram may prove best of the remainder after fading over 2m4f last time.
