Verdict

Benash is fit from the Flat and should do better over fences this season as should Castle Wings, who has a similar profile though may prefer more testing conditions. Not For You is an interesting newcomer to the bigger obstacles having looked very progressive in just three runs over timber while Letter Of Credit might make a fair chaser one day if learning to jump. ELEGANT STATESMAN has been brought along slowly and followed his bumper success with a maiden victory over hurdles at Limerick. He then ran really well in a very strong novice hurdle at Galway won by Que Pasa and can make a winning start over fences. Raise Hell is another to keep an eye on as he makes his debut over the bigger obstacles.
