Verdict

ONE FINE DAY has a Flat rating of 90 and made a highly promising start to her hurdling career in a Grade 2 at Leopardstown won by Blood Cotil. She'll have improved for the experience and her allowance can see her get the better of Pacelli Road. Dermot Weld's lightly-raced charge finished 3l behind South South West on his introduction to hurdling at Gowran and the selection was around the same distance behind that one at Leopardstown so there is little between them. Dougal Philps started a short-priced favourite in that Gowran event but faded after attempting to make the running and looks held. Spot The Pro is another who ran well over timber last time, staying on well behind the odds-on Dogora at Limerick, which was easily his best run to date.
