Verdict

Winning point-to-pointer SIZING RIO made a spectacular return to action on his hurdling debut at Fairyhouse last month where he was never out of a canter to beat today's rival Cops And Robbers by 18 lengths. The winning time was very fast and he looks another potential star for Henry De Bromhead. Captain Arceus was also impressive in landing a maiden over the C&D and he will be winning more races but the remainder will all need to have made progress to trouble the principals.
