Verdict

TOTALLY COUTURE fell at the first on his chasing debut but has had a confidence booster over hurdles and there's plenty to like about Gordon Elliott's charge. He is taking on several disappointing types here and has more scope than most so is handed the vote. Prima Vista has won a bumper and three races over hurdles but so far hasn't done anywhere near as well over fences after a bright start. Mackeys Forge has now had 23 starts over fences without winning despite several near misses but dual hurdles winner Limpopo Tom made an encouraging debut over the bigger obstacles at Limerick and shouldn't be long finding a race.
