Verdict

A huge field of maiden hurdles probably isn't what punters would have wanted after Galway but Park Ranger has to be on the short-list despite a surprise defeat by Carlingford Lough at Roscommon as his overall form is strong enough to win most races of this nature. However, BUY BACK BOB, the winner of a couple of races in just eight starts on the Flat, looks a nice recruit to hurdling and Tony Martin will get the best out of him. Rebel Fitz is progressing nicely and would have preferred a stronger gallop when runner-up to Mr Sykes at Listowel while Ontheground has done well in bumpers and is definitely the type to make a hurdler.
