Verdict

Western Man produced his best run to date over fences at Tramore and will appreciate returning to this softer ground. Blissful Moment has been running against useful opposition without showing much while Coolking's jumping went to pieces at Galway. Kandinski, a winning point-to-pointer, has shown enough in bumpers and over hurdles to suggest he can do well over fences and Dancing Roe will attract support on his chasing debut despite being beaten when a short-priced favourite on his last three starts over timber. LADY OLWYN was in superb form over hurdles at this time a year ago and a chance is taken that she's fit enough after a break to make a winning debut over fences with her allowances a bonus.
