Verdict

Alton Bay wasn't beaten far in a maiden at Roscommon before reverting to a bumper on this track and winning easily. Cebuano is a decent performer on the level and made a very encouraging debut over hurdles at Punchestown in October. A recent spin at Leopardstown will have put him straight and he should get into the frame. LITTLE ROCKY, three times a winner on the Flat, hasn't quite hit the heights over timber but he's mainly been racing on testing ground and tonight's quicker going could be what's needed to get off the mark. Glebeparkhawk won a point-to-point last month and will be better for his opening run over hurdles though may need further.
