Verdict

Great Jones won a Tramore bumper on his debut last August when the ground was very testing. He hasn't really added to that but has always looked a potentially useful hurdler and must go close. SIZING INDIA also won a bumper on his debut but has the advantage of a couple of runs over hurdles where he's done well. There should be more to come from him over this longer trip and he gets the nod. Ring Eye was totally unfancied for his hurdling bow at Kilbeggan but defied his odds with a cracking effort behind Milt Yarberry and he should run into a place.
