Verdict

SWANTYKAY ran very well in a race that has worked out at Ballinrobe before beating tonight's rival House Limit at Downpatrick where the drop in trip worked in his favour. The runner-up is better off at the weight but Gordon Elliott's charge had something in hand and can defy an 8lb rise to complete a quick double. Olwenbrook was having only her third start over hurdles when a surprise winner of a Roscommon maiden but this is much tougher while Ram Them All is another who has plenty to do on his handicap debut. Jessica Harrington tries Director's Forum in blinkers as he's been struggling since going up 8lb for his victory at Punchestown in November.
