Verdict

Ordinary World had shown potential before landing a Tipperary maiden but takes on much stiffer opposition here. Bentelimar is a nice prospect and completed a double before finding the Supreme Novices' Hurdle too much for him. He returns after a lay off but is one to keep an eye on as is Harvey Logan, who was in tremendous form at this time a year ago. RUPERT LAMB (NAP) is rated 145 over fences and comes here on a 14lb lower mark despite a comfortable victory at Killarney in August. He will take all the beating if running anywhere near that kind of form.
