Verdict

BACK IN A TIC has undoubtedly been racing in better company and though now looking exposed should appreciate the drop in class and gain his first success over fences. Blazing Sonnett was very consistent over hurdles and it looks like being the same story over fences after two very good performances where he's jumped well. Byerley Babe was in excellent form over hurdles at this time a year ago and will be all the better for her debut run over fences at Naas last month. She should go well while winning point-to-pointer Maple Valley Gold showed her versatility by scoring over hurdles at Downpatrick and should do even better over regulation fences.
