Verdict

MONEY SPIDER looks the one to be on here. She won a handicap over a mile at Naas in August and made a very satisfactory start over hurdles behind Everything Zain at Thurles so with that experience under her belt can gain her first success over timber. Dayrina and Mad For Road have shown nothing so far so it's one of the newcomers, Positive Vibes, a winner at Clonmel on his latest start in September, who should provide the main threat. Fast On has been placed eight times in 14 starts on the level but has looked more of a sprinter.
