Verdict

There are some nice types here and newcomer Lockstockandbarrel has to be on the short-list for the champion trainer. Winning point-to-pointer On Your Eoin should be winning soon while Vigil made a promising debut behind a much more experienced rival at Fairyhouse on New Year's Day. VOLVALIEN couldn't quite get to Silver Concorde here over christmas but the winner looks a bit special and Philip Fenton's charge can make enough progress to go one better. There are some nice-looking newcomers involved with John Kiely's Icelip one to note in the betting.
