Verdict

Couleur France started a short-priced favourite in all three bumper runs last season but looked one-paced and should do better when sent over jumps. Fluspar showed promise on his debut here but ran moderately at Tipperary while Quinville Castle was beaten a long way on soft ground last time and his best form has been on faster going. PATSIO hails from a yard who do very well in this sphere and though never in contention behind Wicklow Brave at Listowel there was plenty to suggest he will improve enough to take a race of this nature.
