Verdict

The classy hurdler Waaheb won three bumpers and will be fancied to make a winning debut under Flat rules before reverting to the winter game. Thomas Edison has shown promise over trips too short though he'll need to raise his game but the dual bumper winner Storm Away won't need to improve much to gain her first success as she's been thereabouts in all races to date in similar grade. The Galileo colt SARDINIA made a belated debut at Roscommon last month over a trip too short and stayed on strongly in the closing stages. This should suit him much better and he looks the one to be on. Jim Bolger's newcomer News At Six is one to keep an eye on in the betting.
