Verdict

In A Nutshell has done well enough so far and should improve again from his second to Hired Hand at Roscommon but he'll be short enough in the betting. DOWN UNDER was making his racecourse debut when staying on from the rear to finish runner-up to Shady Pines over this C&D in May. With that under his belt he can go one better. Knockgraffon Lad produced an outstanding effort when a 50/1 chance at Cork in April but reverted to type when well beaten at Clonmel a month later. Miss Accurate surprisingly landed a Wexford bumper last month and is probably capable of making a nice hurdler.
