Verdict

INSTANT IMPACKED scored over the C&D in May and was 5lb higher when storming to victory at Tramore last week. Not surprisingly he's up 9lb here but that was only his eighth start over fences and with more to come he can score again. Under The Spell had shown very little before almost grabbing a shock victory at Roscommon. That was over 2m5f and whether she can repeat that effort over this shorter trip is another matter. Georgie scored a surprise victory over hurdles at Galway before a decent run at Roscommon. His four runs over fences have produced nothing but he's definitely improved and has to be on the short-list. Muzak beat a huge field over timber at Galway but was a long way behind Georgie there two days later though it could have come too soon.
