Verdict

KERRIEONVIC was returning from a lengthy absence and making his hurdling debut at Limerick nine days ago. But he only found one too good having attracted market interest and, providing that hasn't taken too much out of him, may go one better here as he has plenty of scope. Desertmore Stream and The Pounds both catch the eye. The former is a winner between the flags and was third in a Grade 2 bumper at Navan last month and is less exposed than the latter, who was placed six times in nine bumpers but is already an eight-year-old. Moreece was beaten less than a length when a 100/1 chance over 2m4f at Punchestown in November but weakened quickly at Leopardstown next time.
