Verdict

STORM AWAY makes her hurdling debut having won two bumpers and scored on the Flat at Wexford. She didn't have much chance in a very tough handicap at Galway last time but her earlier form entitles her to respect despite her penalty and this may prove within her capabilities. Sister Slew also makes her debut over timber but has been a bit disappointing since scoring over 7f at Galway last summer. Winning point-to-pointer Urtheoneiwant ran easily her best race so far under Rules when runner-up to Rae's Guest here last month though a longer trip would probably suit while Padraig's Joy, though likely to be fancied on the form shown at Gowran in July, could find this on the short side.
