Verdict

RAIN IN SPAIN (NAP) has a 4lb penalty for a comfortable victory here on Thursday where she was always travelling well. She'll have no problems with the longer trip and Ricky Doyle's 5lb claim should prove invaluable. Toosey has won twice over fences since August and made all over 3m at Ayr last month. He's 7lb lower over hurdles but has yet to reach a place in six starts over the smaller obstacles. Padraig Roche has made an excellent start to his training career and Open To The World is another racing from a lower mark over timber than fences while Thisonesforollie has continued to run well from his revised mark after scoring at Tramore and looks certain to be thereabouts.
