Verdict

ALLY CASCADE reappears after a long absence but won a bumper on his return a year ago. His close second to the top-class Jezki at Naas in October was a superb effort but, after winning a Thurles maiden, he was well beaten in two higher grade events at Leopardstown. He can make a successful return though Flycorn competed at a high level in 2011/12 and his poor run behind Mickelson at Ballinrobe in May of last year is no real reflection of his ability. King William has been making good progress over timber and landed a maiden with plenty in hand at Ballinrobe in July while Devils Bride easily landed his first two starts in bumpers before being surprisingly beaten at Galway. The latter made a winning start over hurdles at Limerick but will need to jump better to beat these stronger rivals.
