Verdict

URANO, three times a winning bumper in France, has been a massive disappointment for new connections having been a short-priced favourite in his last three starts, all around the minimum trip. This longer trip could be just what's required and he's taken to see off Thunder And Roses, an excellent fourth to the useful Apache Stronghold at Punchestown in October but disappointing when odds-on there a fortnight later. Oscar Fiain has been progressing and only just failed to catch Pint Of Porter in a 2m7f Navan handicap last time while Willow Grange was finishing very strongly when beaten a nose by Gort An Chnoic, who runs in the previous race, over 2m4f at Clonmel.
