Verdict

YOUGHAL BY THE SEA has a quick turnaround after a disappointing effort on his return at Bellewstown last time, having made a bad mistake early on which he failed to recover from, but his form behind Stratum at Galway is the standout on offer and he can bounce back to get off the mark. The Moore Factor could have more to come returning to hurdles having had a couple of outings last year, while his stable companion Pink Ribbon looks best of the remainder.

Verdict

A bad mistake put paid to YOUGHAL BY THE SEA's chances of running well at Bellewstown 6 days ago, but he remains with potential and looks to have been found an excellent opportunity to gain compensation. Go Guarantor is feared most following an encouraging second at this venue last month.
