Verdict

Irish Bulletin won on fast ground here last July but showed testing conditions were no problem when runner-up over hurdles at Limerick last month. Chill has never fulfilled early promise and has been beaten off this mark in the past. FEILE BRIDE began her career in good style but hasn't been seen since a poor run at the Curragh in September. She's been dropped to a lowly mark and, with her stable firing the winners in, she's taken to make a successful reappearance. He's Our Man is a decent handicapper at his best but over further than this while the former UK-based Ningbo Express scored on very fast ground at Beverley last summer. The latter's stablemate Seismic is still a maiden after 15 starts and though Hazariban has been in winning form over hurdles he's another likely to find this on the short side.
