Verdict

Diyala scored on the Flat at Musselburgh in September and ran well over hurdles at Tipperary before being sent for a Grade 3 at Punchestown. She couldn't cope with the rise in class but this is more like it and she looks sure to take some beating. Winning bumper CATIMINI was having just her fourth carer start when just failing to catch the fancied Royal Moll at Galway and with much more to come she's the one to be on. Keith's Delight was only 3l behind in that latter event but still looks held and Emmy Lou looks more of a danger on her hurdling debut as she showed some decent form in bumpers.
