Verdict

Very little to go on here but DUN SCAITH showed improved form behind Arctic Fire at Tipperary and any further improvement will see him difficult to beat. Colin Bowe does well with his point-to-point recruits and Gold Patrol, a recent winner at Cregg, has to be respected. Another winner between the flags, Some Benefit, ran well for a long way on her introduction to hurdling at Galway and may prove best of the remainder in a race where the market could have significant bearing.
