SHOW COURT, a dual winner on the Flat, won't be inconvenienced by testing ground and looks another nice recruit for Dermot Weld. He's been found a decent opportunity to make a winning start over timber. Vent De La Cotte, a winning bumper in France, has run well in both starts to date for Martin Brassil and there should be more to come. Investmentsuccess looked a very promising type when easily landing a Fairyhouse bumper and started odds-on for his hurdling debut at Naas in October but didn't run up to expectations though there should be plenty more in the tank. Patsio won a Limerick bumper on heavy ground in the spring and is gradually coming to hand over hurdles so he's expected to make the frame.
