In depth

Verdict

Some promising types here but the form pick has to be HISAABAAT. Dermot Weld's charge ran a tremendous race behind Willie Mullins' highly-regarded Ut De Sivola in a Punchestown Grade 3 last time and the form was given a massive boost at Gowran on Thursday when the third and fourth finished 1-2 in another strong event. Paul Townend was on board Hisaabaat at Punchestown but is claimed for Darroun here and his mount went some way towards justifying his huge purchase price with a very good introduction behind Shadow Catcher at Punchestown. The strongly fancied Edeymi was behind that day and looks held while Bat Masterson has been running well but is held by the selection on a couple of formlines. The Four Elms and To The Sky should be winning soon but this looks a very tough juvenile hurdle.
