Verdict

After a brilliant start in bumpers and over hurdles, DON COSSACK's form tailed off slightly though his introduction to the bigger obstacles has been long awaited and he's expected to make a winning start. Toon River has some decent form over fences but could just need this and is likely to do better over further but the main threat should come from Dressedtothenines, who beat Zaidpour over hurdles at Fairyhouse in April. She was expected to make a winning debut over fences at Sligo earlier this month but didn't jump well enough. She'll have learnt from the experience and looks potentially useful. Corbally Ghost looked a brilliant prospect when last seen in December 2011 and is another who could make his mark at the highest level over fences.
