Verdict

There's plenty of decent hurdling form on view here but those who watched ABSOLUTLYFANTASTIC make a winning bumper debut at Killarney in July won't want to miss this hugely expensive gelding on his debut over timber. Boxer Beat, placed in a handicap at Listowel, has since had a run on heavy ground at the Curragh but the biggest threat is likely to come from Landenstown Lady, who would have made a winning start over hurdles at Down Royal but for falling at the last. Formal Bid has been in very good form on the Flat this summer but Akatara has stronger hurdling form having been placed three times in decent maidens.
