Verdict

TWIN PLAN scored between the flags at Aghabullogue early last month and reverted to hurdling to gain her first success over timber at Fairyhouse last week. She's been raised 6lb, which doesn't seem harsh, and the longer trip will be in her favour so she can complete a hat-trick. Rating Queen went up 9lb for landing a handicap here in November and couldn't quite manage to overcome the extra when tackling a longer trip at Tramore. while Robbie McMahon is still a maiden and has enough weight. Cilliseal has been running consistently over fences in the UK and can revert to hurdles on a lower mark. Sun Fisher is still a maiden after 18 starts but well handicapped if anywhere near his best.
