Verdict

GET IN THERE won over 2m4f here in March and though 10lb higher he's been running well enough to get the vote here with his rider's claim a big help. Representing is probably set for a career over fences as she made a promising start at Downpatrick in May but she was in very good form over timber at this time last year and must be on the short-list. Forestside won a couple of races on much faster ground in early summer and this could prove too testing but Selection Box loves a test of stamina and is well handicapped over hurdles compared to fences. Back On The Road is in the same category being 24lb lower than his chase rating. He made a promising comeback over a trip too short at Cork and looks a big threat.
