Verdict

SARABAD has only won once but his overall form and the likelihood that there's more to come suggest he's better than a 119 rated hurdler and he can return to double his winning tally. Aughnacurraveel has gone up 5lb for finishing runner-up to the Crafty Butcher at Gowran and he's on a high enough mark but Courtncatcher continues to thrive and was a very convincing winner at Gowran. Colbert Station beat big fields over hurdles and fences at Leopardstown and Punchestown last season before unshipping AP McCoy in the Grand National, which will be his target again this campaign but Jennies Jewel makes her handicap debut after some fair efforts in very strong novice company.
