Verdict

Not surprisingly many of these have been hurdling including RAISE THE BEAT but he's reverted to the Flat in good form. He followed a decent effort over 1m4f here in January before chasing home the long odds-on Pique Sous over the trip last month and will be unfortunate to come up against one as good. Khan Tengri, who was a long way behind in that latter event, has subsequently won over hurdles at Downpatrick. Jacksonslady is comfortably the best of these over jumps and looks a major threat. She alternates between hurdles and fences and won over the bigger obstacles at Leopardstown over Christmas. It's rare to find Aidan O'Brien with a four-year-old maiden in his yard so Noah Webster may not be such a forlorn hope despite poor form figures. Ordinary Man ran in a Listed chase at Tramore on New Year's Day but has been well beaten in three subsequent runs on this track.
