Verdict

Easter Spirit showed his first sign of ability on the Flat at Tipperary last month and is the type his trainer does so well with. He's one to note on his hurdling debut but the experience of IRISH BULLETIN is likely to prove too much for him. A winner on the Flat for Jim Bolger, he was just touched off by Indian Icon on his debut over timber at Killarney before unshipping Mark Walsh at the last when looking held at Tipperary. McKinley finished third in that latter event but would have been behind the selection so Seismic may prove a better option though the chances are he'll be better over further in time.
