Verdict

Lucky Road has improved markedly since stepping up to this trip and overcame moderate jumping to complete a double at Killarney. He's been raised 11lb and the concession of 14lb, including Aidan Kelly's claim, to WALKING ON GLASS (NAP) may prove beyond him. Padraig Roche's charge looked a certain future winner when narrowly beaten at Tramore and duly landed the odds in easy fashion at Sligo last week. Court Tycoon has some decent form over this trip to his credit and will have needed his debut over fences last time while Mega Mindy has also been in action over the bigger obstacles, scoring at Limerick last month, and is 8lb lower over timber.
