Verdict

Tooreen Legend, a winner at Wexford in May, didn't run as well at Galway last time but looks the type to make a hurdler. Sharjah did well on the Flat and started joint favourite for his hurdling debut here a couple of weeks ago. He could only finish fourth but the experience will have done him good and he has to be considered. However, the other joint market leader FROZEN NORTH, looks to have more scope and it was no fault of his own that he unseated his rider at the first after receiving a hefty bump. Gmac was beaten two lengths by Sharjah over 1m3f at Dundalk in March and has been earmarked for a hurdling career so is definitely one to note.
