Verdict

Baboin had a run over hurdles last May but has since been confined to bumpers and won one at Killarney before runner-up at Limerick. His stable companion Heir of Excitement makes his hurdling debut but hasn't been running well on the Flat. LICKLIGHTER had a couple of runs over fences before reverting to hurdles with a close fifth at Down Royal and that could be good enough for this. Generalisation was on the retreat when falling over fences at Clonmel but should do better back over timber while Room To Roam wasn't beaten far when dropped back to 2m at Wexford.
