Verdict

UNCLE HENRY put in an encouraging performance when finishing third on his hurdles debut at Gowran Park last month and he could take plenty of beating today with that experience under his belt. Jerandme was successful in both of his starts in bumpers and he is an obvious threat to the selection, while Sometimes A Fox and Thomas O'Malley are others to consider.

Verdict

Fairly useful Flat winner UNCLE HENRY made a promising start over hurdles when third at Gowran and can open his account in this sphere with improvement on the cards. Unbeaten bumper performer Jerandme is the other obvious player.
