Verdict

LETHERBELUCKY beat today's rival Top Madam off levels in a Wexford bumper in April and made a very impressive start over timber at Punchestown where she was good value for her seven length success. She looks a very nice prospect and can again take care of the runner-up, won landed a Kilbeggan bumper on her next start and made a very promising hurdling debut behind Missunited at Listowel. Spring Hawk has progressed with each run over timber and made Court Lexi pull out the stops at Limerick a month ago while Hepahepa Naeney had some decent form at this time a year ago and will have needed her recent run, her first since October.
