Verdict

BALLY LONGFORD has been brought along steadily by the champion trainer and there was plenty to like about his bumper success at Downpatrick. A former point-to-pointer, he'll appreciate tackling hurdles and can make a winning debut. Celerity Rules won a Navan bumper in September but has run poorly since but Elijah Gardner has shown potential and looked ready to step up to this trip at Kilbeggan last time. Key People showed promise on his opening run at Kilbeggan and is just the type his trainer does so well with while Dance Floor King made a fair hurdling debut in a strong Limerick maiden and can only improve.
