Verdict

Dayrina landed a maiden on fast going at Down Royal but was beaten when falling at Listowel on her handicap debut. Trazar won a Tramore handicap in August but couldn't quite match that form at Navan though a last-flight mistake didn't help. Pivot Bridge appeared to enjoy the soft ground at Gowran earlier this month and is 7lb higher while The Bugler looked in need of further when staying on strongly at Limerick on Sunday. KING OF ORIEL scored on the Flat at Gowran last month and was having only his fifth start over timber when a close third to Sir Loujay at Fairyhouse on Saturday. He'll love the prevailing conditions and can gain his first success over hurdles.
