Verdict

It's hard to see past LOOKOUTNOW despite this being competitive. He's been alternating between hurdles and fences and has scored very easily over both on his two latest starts so the fact that he's 18lb lower than over the bigger obstacles suggests he's still well handicapped. All The Way Home looks a threat as she's been improving at a rate of knots culminating in her first success over timber at Limerick last month. She finished a long way ahead of Passing Through that day though the latter made major progress when just failing to catch Smart Money at Fairyhouse and is likely to get much closer. Call Rog hasn't had much experience but has been going really well though his only victory came on much quicker ground. Ardboe Abbey has shown up nicely in maidens and is by no means harshly treated on his handicap debut.
