Verdict

Useful hurdler Benash has a couple of fair runs to his credit over fences but doesn't win as often as he should. Dont Back Down has shown some potential though his jumping has let him down on occasions. He would have finished much closer at Thurles last time but for a bad mistake at the last. Forestside, three times a winner over hurdles, finished last of three over fences at Ayr last month. SHINROCK PADDY, four times a winner over timber including a Grade 3, began very well over the bigger obstacles and his overall form looks good enough for this.
