Verdict

The Real Article was probably the best of these over hurdles and Edward O'Grady will have given him plenty of schooling. But this looks an above-average beginners' chase and several have already jumped fences in public. PLEASE TALK finished a long way ahead of Savello when fourth to Dylan Ross at Navan on his chasing bow and, on a line through the latter, has the beating of Mazuri Cowboy. Noel Meade's charge will have learned from that run and can open his account over the larger obstacles today as Cadspeed continues to disappoint and Castle Wings unseated his rider at Thurles last time. Lord Lir, Raggletagglegypsy and the mare Dream Function are all worth noting for future reference but Lucky Spring is jumping fences late in life.
