Verdict

This doesn't look quite as competitive as the second division though there are several nice prospects in a race that generally produces a decent winner and both RIVERSTOWN and Far Away So Close fit the bill. The pair met in what looked a hot maiden at Listowel last time won by the very promising The Real Article with John Kiely's charge just coming out on top. There appears no obvious reason for a form reversal though once again there should be little in it. Apt Manor has done well in bumpers and Willie Mullins will have him tuned up for his hurdling debut while the four-year-old Rheinland, who is the first foal of a winning jumper who also scored on the Flat, showed plenty of promise in a Limerick bumper in July and is one for the future.
