Verdict

Chasing Shadows gained her first success over timber at Tramore on New Year's Eve but pulled up twice over fences before a very good effort behind Carrig Millie at Thurles last month. She looks certain to be thereabouts but the vote goes to STRADBALLY, who hasn't had much racing but who produced a decent run behind Moiqen at Thurles last month and was in touch when falling at Navan a couple of weeks ago. Dunroe Boy has gone backwards since a bright start over fences while Its All Hush Hush has fallen twice in five starts over the bigger obstacles and is still a maiden over hurdles after 18 runs.
