Verdict

GUITAR PETE looked a useful recruit to hurdling when beating Lindenhurst just over two lengths at Listowel with Seeyouallincoppers a long way back in third. The placed horses had won previously and were conceding weight but the winner should have no problems confirming the form with that experience behind him. Sharjah was behind Seeyouallincoppers at Roscommon but benefited from the run and returned there to score a couple of weeks later, though that was on quicker ground than he'll face here. Dream Nolan didn't show much on his debut but can be expected to show some improvement.
