Verdict

High Stratos was having his first start for Jessica Harrington when landing a bumper at the Festival here and has all the credentials to make a decent hurdler. Aidan O'Brien hasn't had much success recently so he'll be hoping MARCHESE MARCONI can make a successful debut. He ran very well in several strong handicaps on the level last year, including when runner-up in the Irish Cesarewitch, and there's every chance he'll do well over timber so gets the verdict. Tooreen Legend also did well on the Flat and reappeared after a long break to score at Dundalk in March. He's another who should have a good career over timber as should Cape Glory. Fourni beat a smart performer in Shesafoxylady in a Galway bumper on fast ground last September and if taking to this easier going is another to consider.
