Verdict

PIQUE SOUS was a big disappointment on his hurdling debut behind Ted Dolly at Cork and faces even stronger opposition here but in the hope that he's learnt plenty from the experience the triple bumper winner is given another chance. Giant's Quest looked as though he needed further when staying on stoutly at Navan though his overall form entitles him to respect while Cool Klan has been making steady progress and looked a sure-fire future winner when runner-up to Stormy Oscar at Tramore. Dale Street and Prince Chaparral are others to consider in what looks a strong event for the money.
