Verdict

Tikkanen Express is better known as a chaser these days and scored at Punchestown when last seen in October last year. He can revert to hurdles on a 20lb lower mark so would have to be a threat if ready. Scheu Time had dropped to a fair mark when runner-up at Punchestown last month but has gone back up a couple of pounds while Goodbye Someday ran poorly in a maiden here last month. FARID (NAP) looks the type for this. A winning bumper in France, he showed potential in maidens last winter and again on his reappearance here last month. He makes his handicap debut and could be thrown in. Powersbomb looks the main threat as he won over fences here last month and can race from 15lb lower. Hareth would be interesting if attracting support.
