Verdict

Winning bumper HOUSE RULES looked a certain future winner when a good third to Hidden Universe at Leopardstown in December and confirmed that opinion with an even better performance behind Greenbelt Star in a huge field at Punchestown last month. He'll take some beating here but Khayar can go well after a good effort behind Redera at Limerick and Back In A Tic showed major improvement when third in a Tipperary maiden last time. The remainder will need to have made progress to trouble the principals.
