Verdict

The Doorman was a bit fortunate at Thurles as better fancied rivals came to grief but it was a smart performance and he can only improve at the age of five. Who Let De Dogsout is similarly penalised but ran poorly at Fairyhouse after a winning debut over fences at Cork where Ravished finished runner-up. Draycott Place has only run once over fences and finished runner-up but that was on fast ground. SIZING COAL had been beaten just over a length by Who Let De Dogsout over hurdles at Clonmel in March when conceding 7lb. He receives the same amount this time on his chasing bow and the winning point-to-pointer can make a successful transition.
