Verdict

Hartside made his hurdling debut at Gowran following a hat-trick on the Flat but jumped very novicey in the early stages and couldn't get involved. He'll be better for the experience and has the beating of Faanan Aldaar on that run. FATCATINTHEHAT started odds-on for his hurdling bow at Clonmel but couldn't quite cope with Crouching Harry, though he travelled well for most of the race. He'll definitely have come on for that effort and has the beating of third-placed Hazariban, who is a good yardstick, while Dayrina was held when falling.
