In depth

Verdict

Sin Palo might just have found 2m6f stretching his stamina on his hurdling debut at Punchestown and with that experience under his belt will take some beating. CHANGING TIMES didn't run quite so well at Naas last time but his earlier effort behind the classy Savello over 2m here gives him a fine chance of going one better and he gets the vote. Knockmehill Lady is held on that run on this track though that was an improved effort and she should make further progress. Winning point-to-pointer Tailors Hill ran a superb race behind Jenari at Limerick and he's another to watch out for with better to come.
