Verdict

BYE BYE O BYE (NAP) just failed to hold off Spider Web at Ballinrobe but the winner has won again so the nine-year-old can get back on the winning trail despite a 6lb rise. Massinis Adventure alternates between hurdles and fences and would have a chance on his victory over this trip at Limerick in November, though he hasn't run since the following month. Quelle Belle Vie was runner-up to the latter at Limerick and has enough scope to make her presence felt while Mia's Anthem was in good form over fences last summer and can race from an 11lb lower mark over hurdles.
