Verdict

Canaly, three times a winner over hurdles, ran well on his first two starts over fences at Kilbeggan but never got involved when favourite on a return visit in June. He may do better after a break but will need to as Make A Track and VESPER BELL look potentially useful performers over fences. The former has the experience of chasing having made a highly satisfactory start when just run out of it by Texas Jack over a trip too short at Naas. He'll be difficult to beat but Vesper Bell has the look of a smart recruit to fences. A winning bumper and successful in a maiden hurdle, he produced a superb effort when narrowly beaten by stablemate Marasonnien in a Grade 1 over timber at the Punchestown Festival and can make a winning start to his new career. Multiple point-to-point winner Clonbeale Vacation may do best of the remainder.
