Verdict

Stowaway Shark went to Lemonfield with plenty of support and overcame being impeded early to making a successful debut. He could prove to be smart but though A Sizing Network made a winning debut at Punchestown points track he was very lucky as he was trailing by 8l when the leader fell at the last. Spancil Hill made a successful debut at Lismore and could be anything but Gordon Elliott won this last year and FREE EXPRESSION is taken to follow-up his fine effort in testing ground at Dromahane where his battling qualities were tested to the limit. His stablemate Double Scores gained an easier victory at Tyrella and looks a danger along with Patrick Mullins' mount Clondaw Farmer.
