Verdict

Formerly with Aidan O'Brien, when he failed to progress after landing a Leopardstown handicap off a mark of 88, MOON INDIGO now makes his first start over hurdles for Howard Johnson and will surely do better here than in the Lonsdale Cup on his most recent outing on the level when last of the eight runners and he looks worth backing to open his account for current connections. Lucinda Russell's Bear Dancing has shown decent form in points and has to be considered first time under rules but he is likely to do better over fences. George Moore's Majestic Mayhem has shown a decent level of form winning twice here over slightly shorter but penalties for those wins may anchor him and preference is for Moon Indigo.
