Verdict

Lios A Choill won a bumper on his racecourse debut at Fairyhouse last February. Despite defeats in his last two starts, Willie Mullins' charge can figure on his seasonal return and hurdling bow. But SHANNON SPIRIT won a bumper here on his first start and was not disgraced when stepped up in class for his return to action at Leopardstown last month. If taking to hurdling, he could prove the one to beat here. Things haven't gone to plan for Marlos Moment after a good effort in a Grade 1 juvenile hurdle early last year, but Hawkhill has place claims on only his second start over timber.
