Verdict

KILLER CROW was held up on his bumper debut at Leopardstown but has made all for very convincing victories subsequently, the latest over this trip. He makes his hurdling debut but is bred for the job and can't be opposed. Winning point-to-pointer Saltmills Blackie has shown potential over timber but needs to jump better while Talk The Lingo has been looking in need of further than this. Thats Nice hasn't been beaten far in any of his four bumper starts and Mick Hourigan's charge, who is by Milan out of a useful hurdler, could provide the main threat on his debut over timber and receiving 8lb from the selection.
