Verdict

Conor O'Dwyer has been unable to find a victory over hurdles for bumper winner Blow The Doors Off but he had some decent performers behind when runner-up to Chicago at Limerick in December. Dromnea's second to Rathvinden at Cork was a good effort and he didn't appear to last out the 2m2f at Leopardstown subsequently. Knockrea has improved with racing and was suited by dropping back to the minimum trip at Gowran when a close fourth to The Winkler. Cracking Chap has come up against smart opposition without being disgraced but if PAINTED LADY consents to do her best she looks the one to be on. She's not the most straightforward but her second to Back Before Dawn at Leopardstown was a fine effort and her allowances can see her home.
