Verdict

Seefood won a bumper and two minor races over timber before a fine run over this trip in a Navan Grade 2. He was still in touch though under pressure when unseating his rider in a Grade 1 on the same track last month in which PONT ALEXANDRE announced his presence on the big stage. Very highly regarded by Willie Mullins, he's well to the fore in the betting for two races at Cheltenham and will probably contract even further after today. Sizing Gold was 3l behind Seefood at Fairyhouse in November though has definitely improved but Our Vinnie has penalties to carry for two hard-fought Grade 3 victories and will do well to concede weight to the selection.
