Verdict

MONBEG WORLDWIDE opened with a victory between the flags then completed a hat-trick in bumpers. He started off over hurdles at Fairyhouse a month ago and was a bit disappointing behind Jetz, though the winner is clearly useful. That was over 2m4f and, with the experience in his favour, he can go one better. Rathcannon is also penalised for a bumper victory at Cork and has changed stables while Belle Helene carries extra for her Sligo bumper victory, though she's shown little in two starts over timber. Rakhine State, from the selection's stable, ran quite well in bumpers and looks the type to do well over timber but Henry De Bromhead's Hitdroadjack, beaten a head between the flags at Castletown in October, is likely to need further and stable companion Game Of War has been beaten a long way in both starts over timber.
