Verdict

Keychain was no great shakes on the Flat but made a promising start over hurdles when third at Killarney, though has changed stables since. He's preferred to Complexity and the already-exposed Karl Marx but we'd rather concentrate on the newcomers. French import Harristown will have been well schooled while the filly Boogie De Bispo should stay the trip but ABRACADABRA SIVOLA has a jumper's pedigree, being a half-brother to useful hunter chaser Sericina, and can make a winning debut.
