Verdict

Big Jemmy hasn't had much racing for his age but came in for support when scoring here in November. He followed up from a lower mark over fences at Tramore on New Year's Day and is in such good heart that he looks certain to go well. Whiskey Hall is just 4lb higher than for his only success over timber and ran his best race for a long time at the Christmas Meeting here. Volkis O'Blue hadn't shown much before gaining a surprise victory in a Tramore handicap on New Year's Eve for which a 6lb rise doesn't appear harsh. Runner-up Up The Girls is 3lb higher and should get closer as that was her first start over hurdles in a very long time. DR PROCTOR is still a maiden over hurdles but signalled his turn wasn't far off when caught on the line by Clashnabrook here last month. He's 5lb higher but looks ready to strike.
