Verdict

Timing'severything needs a market check starting life for Augustine Leahy following a 244 day break, while Leomar has been frustrating to follow in his career so far but could prove capable of landing one of these for Gordon Elliott and his powerful connections. Both arrive with risks attached and it might be wise to go for the lesser exposed THE STEWARD, who was put in some hot races on the Flat for Dermot Weld last season but could find this sphere more to his liking. Robin Des Foret is also respected for team Mullins.

Verdict

Little depth to this maiden hurdle and ROBIN DES FORET looks up to making a winning hurdles debut after landing the odds in a Kilbeggan bumper when last seen in August. Timing'severything is worth another chance starting out for a new stable, while it's still early days with Hickey's Rock.
