Verdict

Lisclogher Lad has won over hurdles here but is still a maiden over fences despite several fine efforts, including when narrowly beaten by The Paparrazi Kid at Wexford. First To Boogie ran his best race to date over fences on heavy going at Galway last month though could have done without a 2lb rise and PERSIAN WIND looks a more likely winner. Philip Dempsey's charge won a novice chase at Tramore last month and his two subsequent runs have been over hurdles. Simple Steps has never won but has been placed several times and can't get much lower while point-to-point and hunter chase winner Black Scorpion is better than he showed at Punchestown and holds Coolbane West on his previous run at Tipperary.
