Verdict

Fastey landed a hunter chase at Tramore last month but that was only his second success in 47 starts between the flags and under Rules. Karinga Queen has fared even worse as she's still a maiden after 22 starts though Paul Carberry should get the best out of her as she's dropped to a very lowly mark. Winning hurdler Playboy Luke has shown nothing over fences so far while winning point-to-pointer Maple Valley Gale has done little over the bigger obstacles. STROLLING HOME's only success over fences came over today's C&D and though that was on fast ground he's done reasonably well on an easier surface and can defy his big weight here.
