In depth


Plenty of runners here but few with realistic chances. Prince Chaparral started odds-on for a Tipperary maiden last time but was well beaten and needs to do better. Winning bumper Dr Tommy looks a likely type for hurdling after his impressive success at Kilbeggan and must be a threat to all while Peaks Of Fire looks certain to be winning soon judged on his effort behind Sun Disc at Down Royal. IN A NUTSHELL keeps finding one too good and had no answer to Burma Rock at Kilbeggan but the winner looks a useful prospect and, as the remainder were well strung out, the form looks good enough for this.
