Verdict

A tough opener where the market is likely to prove the best guide under the circumstances. More Madness landed plenty of hefty bets when successful in a bumper at Limerick in May but that race hasn't worked out as anticipated and he was well held when trying to defy a penalty at Listowel. STARKIE looked to need his reappearance run in a decent contest at Punchestown as he shaped well before fading out of contention. He's likely to have come on for that run and has to be the percentage call. Shamar won a couple for Alain De Royer-Dupre when trained on the Flat in France though he ran no sort of race on his hurdling debut for current connections. Fickle Fortune is held in high regard in the Noel Meade team and ran well when runner-up at Navan yesterday.
