Verdict

Kim Bailey has his string in decent form and it would be no surprise to see Regal Approach, a half-brother to the talented Adamant Approach, run a big race on his chase bow but a chance is taken with another chasing debutant. NOBLE ARAN failed to trouble the judge over hurdles so has something to prove as he tackles the larger obstacles but he's bred for this game and it would be no surprise to see him step up to the mark. The Rainbow Hunter showed plenty of promise as a hurdler and may have more to offer in this discipline, Bob Casey is also well worth considering on his chase debut with Timmy Murphy a positive booking for the yard whilst Buailteoir has the edge in experience but does look vulnerable.
