Verdict

Morney Wing was a decent second in a maiden hurdle at Naas last month and has every chance of going one better here if handling the drop in distance. Golan Dancer only found one too good at Limerick in December and On Impulse was only beaten a couple of lengths at Fairyhouse on debut and is open to improvement. YERMAN's sire Saffron Walden has produced a few bumper winners and his dam won a couple of times over hurdles. Philip Fenton's newcomer could be worth an interest under an experienced amateur.
