Verdict

TORNADO WATCH has gone close the last twice on the level and, having scored twice over hurdles in the spring, he can get off the mark in this sphere now stepping up in trip a further two furlongs. Davids Charm was fifth behind the selection at Ballinrobe on what was just his second Flat appearance and he will probably put up most resistance, while bumper winner Kolumbus is interesting having been off the track for over a year.

Verdict

TORNADO WATCH ran to a fairly useful level when runner-up twice in similar events last month and stands a good chance of getting off the mark here. Kolumbus hasn't been seen since pulling up over hurdles in June last year but is still feared for the Willie Mullins team, while Davids Charm can build on his recent fifth at Ballinrobe.
