Verdict

Duc De Savoie started a short-priced favourite when only fourth on his hurdling debut at Cork in January but will have been sharpened up for this and looks certain to be in the firing-line. Stablemate NATURAL HIGH, a winner on the Flat at Limerick last month, was fancied for a strong handicap on the level here earlier in the week but could only finish mid-division. A winning bumper, he looks the type for hurdling and can make a successful start. Winning point-to-pointer Carbon Credit has been going well over timber but over much further and it's a surprise to see him dropping back to the minimum. Super Collider hasn't shown too much so far for Shark Hanlon but produced a better effort at Roscommon last time and is likely to improve again.
