Verdict

WANDERING AENGUS should finally get off the mark over timber despite having a penalty to carry for his debut victory in a bumper way back in 2010. He's been very unfortunate not to have won a race as he's gone very well several times without quite getting there and the opposition here is not up to his standard. Changeofluck made a reasonable start over hurdles at Wexford but couldn't handle the step-up to 3m at Bellewstown while after his victory between the flags Better Part Of Me started a short-price favourite when flopping on his hurdling debut here before finishing tailed off at Kilbeggan. Winning point-to-pointer Camillas Wish may do best of the remainder.
