Verdict

Sizing Italy hasn't had much experience so there was plenty to like about his chasing debut at Fairyhouse and, with improvement likely, he should be competitive. Raajih had some reasonable form over timber and is one to keep an eye on as he makes his debut over fences but this can be fought out by CHINO VALDES and Johannisberger, who occupied the places behind Toostrong at Gowran with the former just coming out best and taken to confirm the form. Tepalo is the type to do better now sent chasing and is one to note in the betting.
