Verdict

Gunner Lindley is an interesting recruit to hurdling and the market should be noted as he's from a yard that get them ready. He finished in front of DIPLOMAT on the Flat at Cork in May but was receiving 22lb and has to concede weight here and Dermot Weld's charge looks the one to be on despite disappointing over timber so far. Via Del Corso is still a maiden after ten starts over timber but ran quite well on the Flat at Ballinrobe last time.
