Verdict

Sizing Sahara will no doubt start at shorter odds than he should given his connections though he's shown nothing in either start to date. Get Back To Me ran very well when placed at Cork last month but disappointed in a better race at Down Royal subsequently. He has the best form of those with a run under their belt but one of the newcomers may be good enough. Folneyev is a half-brother to a decent winning hurdler and should be respected but it's TANGLED WEB, who has enough pace in his pedigree on his dam's side, that gets the vote to make a winning start under Nina Carberry. Tomyros may prove best of the rest with her allowances.
