Verdict

Held in high regard by his trainer, BISHOPSFURZE came unstuck on a foray into Graded company earlier this month when badly hampered. He was a cosy winner of a maiden hurdle at Cork before that and can return to winning ways here before returning to better things. The consistent Start Me Up may not win as often as he should but will be no pushover having gone close in a decent contest at Limerick recently. Profit Margin and Another Palm opened their accounts over timber last time and there should be more to come from them.
