Verdict

Around The Clock made a bright start over hurdles at Limerick and looks certain to make a much better hurdler than a Flat performer though he's up against some very interesting newcomers here. Shamar, a dual winner in the Provinces, shaped with promise in much better company at Longchamp and should soon start to repay some of the 125,000 euros it took to prise him away. However CAUSE OF CAUSES, who also landed a minor race in France before stepping into better company, has a better pedigree being closely related to Derby winner Kris Kin and out of a Group 3 winner. He can get off the mark though Enchanted Forest, a decent handicapper for Aidan O'Brien, looks the type to do well over timber.
