Verdict

Open To The World looked well treated when switched back to fences at Sligo last month, but she was thoroughly disappointing in a performance that ended in being unseated, which leaves her with plenty to prove now. Therefore, preference is for DOOLOUGH LAD, who caused a surprise when scoring over track and trip last time and despite the hefty whack in the ratings, he should be able to make his presence felt. Invincible Don was back in fifth that day and the veteran could get closer now tried in cheekpieces.

Verdict

A far from convincing bunch, so a chance is taken on FORRARDON XMOOR. He proved to be a disappointment on debut for his leading handler at Perth last month, yet his relative strength in the market is worth remembering and it would come as no surprise to see him do better refitted with a tongue tie. Veteran Ballyfinboy and Doolough Lad are others to consider.
