Verdict

UN DE SCEAUX has frightened the opposition away and, with a Grade 1 entry at Punchestown next week, should have a nice pipe-opener. Unbeaten in two French bumpers and over hurdles at Punchestown, he should prove in a different league to his two rivals. Rory O'Moore is a useful hurdler on his day and though he's only won once he's mixed it in top company and rarely been found wanting. He looks much more likely to finish runner-up than the maiden Our Ollie.
