In depth

Verdict

This looks moderate so Willie Mullins' newcomer ZADARSKA, whose dam was a winner on the Flat and over timber, can make a successful start. Colm Murphy's newcomer Strove For Gold has the pedigree for this and could prove troublesome while any market move for Saoirse's Sister should be heeded. Big Bluff showed nothing in two point-to-points but made a reasonable start under Rules at Thurles and should improve but the remainder with form in bumpers will need to make major progress.
