Verdict

Winning point-to-pointer and hurdler DANGAN DAYLIGHT looked certain to be suited by further when placed behind Ros Brin over the minimum trip at Clonmel on her chasing debut and this should prove within her capabilities. Gerdalia fell when fancied for this a year ago but has been disappointing subsequently and she may be better on quicker ground. Oscars Business isn't the most consistent of performers but her best form would make her difficult to beat and she's produced her better runs on heavy ground. Knockcroghery has won on the Flat and over hurdles and didn't run badly on her chasing bow at Thurles a month ago.
