Verdict

HARRIE went for 110,000 euros after finishing a close second over hurdles at Fontainebleau in November and that experience can be shown to good effect here. Dorydalis won a point in February before a promising bumper debut at Fairyhouse but was beaten a long way when runner-up on his return to action here last month. Castafiore Park started off with a victory between the flags then ran well in a Navan maiden hurdle before finding the well-supported Minnies Secret much too strong in a Limerick bumper. Liz Doyle's newcomer Cairnhill, a half-brother to a winning hurdler, has a smart pedigree and is one to note in the market.
