Verdict

KERB APPEAL may have been fortunate to score over timber at Punchestown last time but he's done very well in that sphere and looks just the type to make a decent chaser. He can make a winning debut over fences though Gordon Elliott won this a year ago and will be hoping Wikaala, who has shown promise on several occasions, runs better than he did at Perth last time where he finished last of the four runners when odds-on. Alpine Eagle was useful over hurdles and was expected to make a winning start over the bigger obstacles at Killarney but he never got to grips with the fences until too late and may need further. Beckwith Star ran quite well on his chasing bow behind Politeo at Limerick and will certainly improve enough to make his presence felt but Mission Impossible has been let down by his jumping so far.
