Verdict

FLEMENSTAR, a winning point-to-pointer and hurdler, made a promising start over fences behind Bog Warrior over the C&D and looks one to follow this season. He easily holds Oconnells Pike and Salute Him on that run and Nearest The Pin looks the main threat as he jumped well before making a mistake at the last on his chasing bow behind Days Hotel at Punchestown and will certainly improve. Fever Pitch didn't show much on his chasing bow at Limerick but will do better in time and Cottrelsbooley is an interesting recruit to the bigger obstacles.
