Verdict

DIRECTOR'S FORUM is only a four-year-old but his overall form gives him a fine opportunity. His recent third at Punchestown was given a boost when the runner-up scored on Monday and he can gain his first success. Big Phil showed the benefit of his opening effort with a much better run at Punchestown last month and looks a threat while Clar Na Mionn has shown a bit of potential in his two starts. Another youngster, Tomyros, has come up against strong opposition and should find this less taxing and winning point-to-pointer Whats Happening should be capable of better in a race where the market could provide the best clues.
