Verdict

The majority of these are making their debuts over fences and most have the potential to do well at the game. OUR VICTORIA, a winning point-to-pointer, has had just two runs over the bigger obstacles, running Benefit Of Porter close on her debut over 2m3f at Listowel before finding 3m1f on very fast ground too much for her at Kilbeggan. She's taken to make her limited experience count while Victrix Gale, who also found firm conditions against her on her chasing bow at Killarney, is another who can do better. Stephanie Kate was disqualified after finishing first past the post on heavy going over timber at Fairyhouse in February and looks a nice prospect but useful hurdler La Sarrazine pulled up on his debut over fences at Ballinrobe last week after a long break and may need another run. Indian Harrier, who pulled up in a point on Sunday, is the only one of the remaining quartet who can be ruled out with confidence.
