Verdict

Sizing Australia is no doubt warming up for a crack at the cross-country events though he's no slouch over hurdles and is very well handicapped. Pure Style won two bumpers in the UK and has shown promise over hurdles so any market move should be noted. Silver Shuffle has been in action on the Flat but hasn't won in 14 starts over timber but the lightly-raced Sensing improved at Limerick last time and wouldn't need much more to get involved. Timjoe has never reached a place over hurdles but he's been running well on the Flat this summer and arrives here on such a lowly mark that he can get involved without beating LUIMNEACH ABU. He's been very unfortunate to come up against in-form winners in his last three starts and his second to the prolific Ancient Sands at Ballinrobe would be good enough for this.
