Verdict

An Drummer Liath has yet to race on anything other than ground with plenty of give but Ruby Walsh's booking is a positive. Dr Anubis led for a long way when a short-priced favourite at Kilbeggan and this shorter trip will help while Irish Elk was returning from a long break when running very well at Kilbeggan on firm ground in July so another absence shouldn't be a concern. POINT THE TOES was having just her fourth hurdles start when runner-up to Magnetic Force at Downpatrick and with her allowances and jockey's claim looks the one to be on here.
