Verdict

Mackeys Forge has some strong form to his credit but is capable of putting in a poor effort and didn't get far at Gowran a week ago. Oscars Business was having just his second start over fences when runner-up to the promising Bullock Harbour at Roscommon and looks certain to be in the firing-line with further progress likely. Total Submission is on the upgrade though this is tougher than the novice event he contested at Clonmel so this looks destined for JOHANNISBERGER. Noel Meade's very progressive five-year-old easily won a maiden hurdle at Roscommon before a very impressive debut over fences behind the potentially useful Tofino Bay at Navan.
