Verdict

JETSON will be a short-priced favourite here and is impossible to oppose. Jessica Harrington's charge is rated 136 over timber after some classy performances and though not quite hitting the heights over fences in his two starts to date there should be more to come and he can take this before going on to better things. Latin Connection gained a surprise victory over hurdles at Down Royal and though showing little over fences the experience will have done him good and he's young enough to continue on the upgrade. Cloone Springs couldn't handle Klepht at Wexford but that was no disgrace as the winner looked useful while winning hurdlers North Star Lad and Dont Back Down both have plenty of scope and can make their presence felt without troubling the selection.
