Verdict

SIN PALO has yet to fulfil the potential he showed on his chasing debut but there's still plenty of time and this looks his for the taking. Beaten a head by the classy Muirhead at Galway, he was travelling easily when falling three out at Ballinrobe last time and compensation awaits. Arabella Boy is a decent staying chaser but is likely to find one or two of these too quick and Crash looks a bigger threat. He scored over this trip at Punchestown in December and competed at a very high level subsequently. He should win good races this season and will take advantage if the selection fluffs his lines. Gates Of Rome has plenty of strong form in novice company over fences but Deal Done needs further and Whatuthink is much better over hurdles.
