Verdict

KANDINSKI is the only one of these with a bumper run to his credit and did well to finish runner-up to Thynetocatcher at Gowran. He can put that experience to good use though there are numerous dangers including Killiney Castle, odds-on when making a winning debut at Askeaton in February. Colin Motherway's presence on board Commanchewardance is a bonus and the dual point-to-point winner must have a chance while Noel Meade's Corbally Ghost can make progress from his second place on his debut at Lismore last month and his trainer won this in 2008 with Pandorama.
