Verdict

Father Jed hasn't shown much and was beaten a long way when fourth at Downpatrick but Have A Few will improve from last month's run at Killarney. The beautifully-bred Tetraites has some fair form on the level and has a higher rating than CROWN PLEASURE but the latter has already shown some decent form over timber and arrives on the back of a victory over 1m3f at Wexford, when Mouskersize was behind, so looks the one to be on.
