Verdict

Usuel Smurfer looks likely to make a bold bid on his handicap debut as it was fast ground at Downpatrick last month when he landed a maiden hurdle in good style. Twin Plan is only 3lb higher than when scoring at Ayr in April but may prefer some cut in the ground and the last comment also applies to Sebadee. The inconsistent Spring Hawk has bits of form that could see him figure but IMPERIAL SHABRA makes most appeal. Pat O'Brady's charge can race off a lower mark over timber and nearly took advantage when runner-up at Roscommon last month. He's taken to go one better in what looks a less competitive contest with Dark Prospect perhaps proving best of the rest.
