Verdict

Pallasator, seven times a winner on the Flat for Sir Mark Prescott, matched strides with the classy Next Destination on his hurdling bow over 2m3f at Naas in November until finding nothing from the last. Antey, a winner on the level in France, made a promising start over timber at Leopardstown then didn't appear to last out 2m4f on very testing ground here last month. Dual bumper winner DIS DONC has found one too good in his last three over hurdles but has ben unlucky to bump into some promising types. He can go one better though winning point-to-pointer The Holy One did well in bumpers and ran well for a long way over 2m3f on his debut over timber. Derby De Thaix, a bumper winner in France, may do best of the remainder.
