Verdict

Sizing Australia may just need this before heading for the cross-country track at Cheltenham though there's no doubt that he's extremely well handicapped over hurdles these days. Rare Symphony scored over 2m3f at Downpatrick last month but has no problems with this shorter trip while Tin Town Boy should be doubling the tally of his lone victory over hurdles soon if he runs as well as he did at Fairyhouse last time. ENTER THE INDIAN has gone off the boil recently but he'd looked too high in the weights after some fine form in early summer and with his young rider able to claim 3lb he's taken to get back on the winning trail.
