Verdict

A Sizing Network made most on his hurdling debut at Fairyhouse but steps up in class here and may be seen to greater advantage over further. Vote Of Confidence looked a nice prospect when scoring at Cork and didn't enjoy the very testing ground at Gowran on his next start. Tawseeh has only won once in a dozen starts over timber and that was over this trip at Sligo. He's been racing over much further subsequently and, back over the minimum, has to be considered. ROCK THE WORLD (NAP) has slowly been making progress and followed his maiden victory at Down Royal with a very good effort in a Grade 2 over 2m4f at Navan. He looks the one to be on here.
