Verdict

Not surprisingly given the race distance, many of these are better known under National Hunt Rules. Cairdin, who finished runner-up to Glam Gerry at Navan on his only start under Flat Rules. generally alternates between hurdles and fences and scored over the smaller obstacles at Leopardstown's Christmas meeting but PIQUE SOUS has won three bumpers and finished a close third in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham last year. He won easily over timber at Thurles when last seen in October and can take this before heading back to the Festival next month. Overcall showed promise over much shorter trips on the Flat before a poor hurdling debut at Leopardstown while the superbly-bred Somewhere should have no problems staying this far and will be better for her recent belated racecourse debut on this track. Dual bumper winner Raise The Beat looks best of the remainder.
