Verdict

First Class Ticket, who only had five runs on the level and showed potential, is a half-brother to a winning hurdler. Pahaska made a very encouraging debut at Auteuil in March but was soon struggling on a return visit the following month. His stable also run DAKOTA MOIRETTE, the pick of Bryan Cooper, who was on board when he made too many mistakes in a Grade 3 here a couple of weeks ago. He'd fell at the first on his hurdling debut at Gowran but hopefully his jumping will have been ironed out ready for this. Ineffable made an encouraging hurdling debut at Gowran but never got to grips with the leaders at Cork on Sunday and will need to bounce back. Prospectus won a minor handicap at Ffos Las for Hughie Morrison in September BUT his stable also run Ormskirk, who has run better than his form figures suggest.
