Verdict

Dr Moloney made a very promising hurdling debut over this track and trip last June but that was on fast ground and he's been absent since. Appletime has run some fair races on heavy ground but is inconsistent though he found 2m4f too far last time. Miranour has run well in handicaps including on this track in December but PYRUS GOLD WIND looks to be progressing and though unlikely to catch Mad Brian when falling at the last at Navan last time it was a fine effort and he looks the one to be on. Hidden Horizons may prove best of the remainder.
