Verdict

Baby Grey, a dual point-to-point winner, is improving fast and was an impressive winner of a Down Royal bumper. He looks certain to go well on his hurdling debut but meets a couple of useful rivals. ENCHANTED FOREST has some fine form to his credit against decent opposition but hasn't been able to get his head in front. This is his first attempt at the trip and hopefully it will prove enough to enable him to get off the mark. Fergiethelegend has also run well against useful rivals and has been finding 3m just beyond him recently so this should be his ideal distance. Totally Couture ran poorly when last seen at Navan in February and has been given a break though his earlier form puts him right in the frame.
