Verdict

Coolfighter, a winner on the Flat in Germany, has shown ability for Tony Mullins and looks the type to make a hurdler. Barry Geraghty's presence on board Salam Alaykum is interesting and John Egan's dual Flat winner is one to note in the betting. Donatis Comet won three bumpers but hasn't shown the same level of form over timber and was outfought by Run For Firth at Galway. He should find a race soon but could again have to settle for a place as FANTASY KING should be good enough despite his expensive defeat at Kilbeggan as his previous run behind Curley Bill at Cork is the best form on view.
