Verdict

Sammy Black has improved with every run and gave supporters of Shariyan a fright in a Leopardstown handicap last month. He only faded close home over 2m2f that day so today's trip should be ideal. Never Enough Time made a decent start in a maiden here last month and will do better but along with winning point-to-pointer and bumper Girl In Blue he may be playing for a place as Willie Mullins' import from France UN DE SCEAUX is probably the one to be on. Unbeaten in two bumpers in the Provinces, the first by no less than 20l, his pedigree suggests he'll be at home over today's track and trip and looks yet another potentially useful performer for the champion trainer. Alexander Leaving hasn't been out for some time but may do best of the remainder.
