Verdict

D'bru Na Boinne looked suited to fast going when defying a second-last mistake at Thurles and is unproven on soft ground. Buck A Trend attempted to make all in a Tipperary handicap but had no answer when passed two out while Crazyheart showed major improvement when stepped up to 2m5f on heavy ground here last month so may find this too short. Littlestickarubarb has been going well over hurdles and makes his chasing bow while Reach Up makes a quick reappearance after a fair run in similar company at Limerick on Friday. Roxboro Road won a handicap hurdle on heavy ground at Ballinrobe in May but was well beaten there a few weeks later. He's making his debut over fences as is CRIMSON CHIEF and it's the latter, a winner between the flags who just failed to concede a stone to Aoibhe's Beau in a maiden hurdle here in October, who can make a successful start over the bigger obstacles.
